This interactive U‑M Arts Initiative event focuses on the ways that the Visual Arts in our region have persevered and even thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Musicians, actors, artists, and institutions have had their ability to practice, perform and exhibit severely impeded by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the challenges, many have developed creative ways to stay active with their craft and engage the community. Join us for an interactive discussion via Zoom of the various ways artists and institutions in the Detroit area have persevered and even thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be the first of a two-part Town Hall focusing on both the Visual and the Performing Arts. 

Moderator: Maryrose Flanigan, executive director of the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities. 

This event is organized by the U‑M Arts Initiative in partnership with the Detroit Center, a2ru, the Carr Center, and Concert of Colors.
