McLean Project for the Arts to Host Virtual Town Hall on Visual Arts

The McLean Project for the Arts is one of the hosts for the virtual town hall tonight (Tuesday) on how the pandemic is impacting the visual arts in the D.C. area.

The event is also being co-hosted by VisArts, the Third Space Network, and Hamiltonian Artists/DC. The “Strategies for Survival in the Arts” town hall is set to run from 6-7:30 p.m.

“The event will also serve as an information resource for organizations facing the challenge of migrating their public events and exhibitions to the online medium,” a press release for the event said.

The town hall will include short presentations from art leaders and an open forum to discuss solutions and ideas for things like funding, programming, community engagement and more, according to the press release.

According to the press release, guest speakers will include:

  • Nora Halpern, an art historian with Americans for the Arts
  • Jack Rasmussen, the director of the American University Museum
  • Robert Goudie with the Virginia Commission for the Arts
  • Sarah Burford with the National Endowment for the Arts

People interested in tuning in for the event can register online.
