There are 15 Covid themed posts on the blog for April 2020. See the side bar for topics such as Funding sources (federal and local) for indie artists, Science-based links for current Covid info, Online sources for artists, family-friendly activities, self-care and home office tips and skills. My posts always follow the "SIFT before sharing" protocols -- See post #2 of 15 for more on those guidelines. While all the info here was current as of 5.1.20 and I do update periodically, there will be more current info online going forward. The links here are all good starting points to find credible, current info.
Stay safe. Be well.

Many of SNB's artist clients are working at home now, depending on mail order for supplies and resources.
If you "like" and share art posts online -- please support and buy directly from those artists. The loss of convention and art fair income means online stores more important than ever.
Art is life. All the online art images... the music...dance.. and other art posts shared and streaming at this time confirms this fact: We value art and artists. Especially when we need to be nurtured.
How we heal others defines us as a culture and as individuals.

Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn't stand up anymore,
the Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.
