Virtual Arts

While I’m sure there will be plenty of paintings, plays and poetry created during the coronavirus quarantine, there will be times when all you want to see is something you didn’t make in your house. But you can’t, because local arts and culture venues are closed. The Fund for the Arts and the Arts & Culture Alliance have taken pity on us art lovers and created a website of virtual arts. It’s the best of both worlds. There are three sections: Greater Louisville Virtual Arts Resources (including the 21c Museum Hotel, Frazier History Museum and Kentucky Shakespeare), National Virtual Arts Resources (where you can “visit” the Smithsonian Institution or stream plays and musicals) and How to Support Local Restaurants (after all, food is an art and cultural attraction in these parts).

Now until further notice
