Myseum of Toronto presents Art in the Time of COVID-19: A Virtual Series Exploring How We Value Art + Artists In A Time of Crisis

In the past several weeks, we’ve watched how the lives of artists have been upended by COVID-19. At the same time, there has been a surge of creativity. It’s no secret that art—in all forms—is helping us pull through this crisis, but what impact does this have on the actual artists? 

In a two-part series, Myseum of Toronto will explore this question, and more. They’ve collaborated with some of the smartest art minds in Toronto; we know the conversations that come out of these panel discussions will spark important ideas and much-needed reflection—we hope you’ll join!
