As effects from the COVID-19 outbreak continue, we hope you are staying safe and healthy in this time.
Our office will be closed until further notice, but Lane Arts Council staff are working remotely and available by email. Find our staff contact list here, and stay tuned for regular updates on our Facebook page.
In an effort to support Lane County artists and arts organizations, we are now maintaining this page on our website to share resources such as emergency funds, job opportunities, and tutorials for transitioning a creative practice to the web.
To support local artists who are struggling financially due to lost gigs or sales of their work, we have established the Lane County Artist Relief Fund. Please donate to this essential fund in support of our local arts community in this challenging time. For artists in need, applications to the fund are now open.
Lane Arts Council will not coordinate any previously scheduled in-person events and programs March through April. Our May 1st First Friday ArtWalk is cancelled, in-school arts education programming is postponed per school closures, and our ArtSpark Gala and Auction will be postponed to October 1st. Our remaining artist professional development workshops will be adapted to a virtual format.
You can view fun local arts content on our Facebook! We are maintaining a list of all our virtual artist interviews and studio tours on our ArtWalk page. Check out our gallery tour with Karin Clarke, new work from Beth I. Robinson, a walk through the Whiteaker Printmakers studio with Heather Halpern, and more!
Please email email@example.com with any questions, and thank you for being a part of the Lane Arts Council team!
