Chances are you have joined a live-streamed morning workout, a home concert or a virtual tour of a gallery. Art and creativity are seeping out of our society. Artists are keeping us sane through this quarantine — All for FREE! It’s time to pay artists to get back to work!
70% of Art Share residents will not be able to pay their May rent. Many of them are full-time artists depending on the gig-economy to support them and they do not know how they will repay their debts.
Businesses are being boarded up and LAPD has shared their concern as burglary numbers have gone up.
Art Share is committed to paying artists for their work. We will pay artists $500 for a mural painted on a boarded-up business at no charge to that space.
We need your help to prove that ARTISTS ARE ESSENTIAL! Donate today!
