The pandemic has interrupted a lot of industries, including the arts. Artists and museums have been hit particularly hard by this pandemic, but it has not stopped them from creating and sharing their work with the public. This hour, we hear from artists and curators on how they're sharing their craft with the public, while in quarantine.
Coming up, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT joins us to discuss how the museum has stayed afloat during the pandemic.
We also hear from the Simsbury Art Trail on the 37 life size sculptures the town is currently hosting. They can be found in unexpected places all over town.
We want to hear from you. Are you a local artist? Have you picked up a new craft or art project during the pandemic?
