According to a recent survey, 64% of artists and creative workers are unemployed! Every opportunity to perform, showcase, or display in person has vanished for the time being. The creative community is deeply wounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, I’ve joined RAW Artists in an effort to help fundraise directly to artists for a project titled, The National Arts Drive.
On Saturday, June 20, 2020, we’re calling all artists in every creative medium to showcase from their front lawns, driveways, balconies, stoops, or studios. We’re inviting the community-at-large to take a drive and experience the creative culture living in their own neighborhood. The driving experience will be paired with a mobile website and an interactive map. As drivers approach an installation or performance they can donate directly to the artist, follow them on social media, and/or flag their online shop for future purchases.
If you or a creative you know if interested in joining this movement and raising awareness and financial support for artists, sign up and drop your map marker at https://NationalArtsDrive.com
Pazan Gallery will be featuring 4 artists including Marianne Morris, Everist Prokofiev, Carolyn Daniels and Marcelo Leonardo Pazan. We will be open from 10 am - 3 pm
