The Arts During COVID -19:
I also understand that the words “arts” and “culture” can, to some smack of blue-state elitism. Let us bear in mind then that your kids school play, the marching band at your high school football game, the industry that puts books in your church or school library, the shows you watch on television and the video games you pay with your friends are all the products of an arts and culture industry, their fuel being drawing and imagining and thinking and dreaming and making shit up for our consumption and enjoyment. You already spend an ungodly amount of your time and money on arts and culture whether you chose to call it that or not. Now, that industry needs you to show up more than ever.
