A Note on the COVID-19 Pandemic

More art for more people

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Mid-America Arts Alliance are sympathetic to those who are concerned for their health, as well as their incomes and professional commitments. We realize that this poses difficulties for the many of us who gather together to experience as well as create art. As we are committed to the health and safety of our constituents and staff, M-AAA will make any adjustments necessary to continue serving the artists and arts and cultural organizations of our region and across the country, as possible.

Grant recipients and program participants are encouraged to contact M-AAA staff with any questions. Many employees are now working remotely, and arrangements may be made to make upcoming convenings virtual. In some cases, we may find a need to postpone or cancel select events.

Anyone concerned about COVID-19 may want to consult the ArtsReady website, a service of South Arts; as well as consult the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), among other sources. (Please visit this page for more ideas.)

Our mission is to support you, our constituents. We are following the decisions made by states and communities, in compliance with their state and local health officials, in the case of all closings or postponements. If you have any questions, please reach out. We appreciate all that you do to build our creative communities, and we look forward to many more shared arts experiences.
