Hello Friends and Artists!

We hope this message finds you well.  The hardest part of this whole pandemic travesty is not really knowing how everyone is doing. We have the fragments of national and state information bombarding us but how are all our friends really doing? Please hang in there and know that we can all get through this.  Remember,  art-making, making music, listening to music, and looking at art really does deliver resilience in dark and uncertain times.

Here is a great link on the science of art's healing properties.

On that note, check out the latest installment of Art Apart.  We changed the name from Art at Home - it just sounded too stuck-in-the-house!

We were really encouraged with the attendance and positive feedback for the Bisbee ‘17 online event in July. It was so great to see so many names pop into the feed. We intend to continue delivering cultural and creative opportunities electronically!

We would love to hear from Bisbee artists - do you have an idea that would work perfectly in an online delivery? A poetry event, an experimental sound project?  Can we help deliver it to the public? To all the 2-d artists and sculptors- Are you comfortable sharing your work online?

Do you want to participate in a call for work electronically? Now is the time to sharpen your photography skills and take pictures of your work! We want to see what you are working on these days.  We have photography tips in Art Apart just for that reason.
