15 Ways YOU Can Support Local Artists. Online. Right Now.

Updated: 6 days ago

Local art goes global in the wake of Covid-19.

These are tough times, and everything is changing. If we aren't able to work from home, we likely aren't able to work at all, unless we work (and risk our health daily) at hospitals, grocery stores, and other life-supporting businesses. This paints a dark picture, BUT, we have a glimmer of hope: the internet. Many creatives in Denver that have found themselves out of work have turned to the internet and modified their businesses to run in a remote landscape. They are creatures of cyberspace, and the artists of the future!
