The discussion celebrates the opening of the Bridgeport Public Art Fund, whose mission is to provide resources, guidance, and hands-on support to create new public art trails in Bridgeport. We also learned what's new on the Public Art front in four other towns.

Economic help for the arts community could be on its way, but it needs your help! The American Rescue Plan is sending funding directly to Connecticut towns for their leadership to use in ways that work best for their circumstances. The Connecticut Art Alliance is asking towns to reserve 1% for the arts, and either grant funds directly to the creative community or team up with a regional arts council or community foundation to distribute. Download this letter and send it to your town’s leadership along with a personalized note explaining why this funding is so important to you and your town. For general talking points to guide your personal message, visit our Art is Part Talking Points.
The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County has opened the first iteration of what it hopes will be a broad and deep registry of artist studio spaces in our region - including artists communities and spaces with individual studios to rent. You can see this early version here. We invite commentary and contributions.

 to support struggling residents during the pandemic. The guaranteed income program announced by Mayor London Breed, "is one of several guaranteed income pilots that we’re developing in San Francisco,” said Breed, noting in an earlier statement that “the arts are critical to our local economy and are an essential part of our long-term recovery." Artists are defined as “someone who actively engages with the community through music, dance, creative writing, visual art, performance art, installation, photography, theater or film,” according to the program’s website. Read FULL Article here...

According to an August 2020 Brookings Institution report on COVID-19’s impact on America’s creative economy, an estimated 2.7 million creative jobs were lost due to the pandemic. While there are a number of reasons to be cautiously optimistic, the pace of recovery is still largely unknown. Here are strategies for structuring your job hunting approach during these uncertain times from Maria Villafranca, NYFA Coach and Marketing Director at Design Museum Everywhere. These insights come from her recent online workshop titled “Job Hunting Strategies During the Pandemic,” presented by NYFA Learning. In the article, Villafranca provides food for thought: What is your dream job now? Consider creative opportunities in and outside of the Arts; What are your transferable skills? What is the next step? Exploring, Engaging and Networking. Read FULL Article here...

But even as physical museums remained closed, art enthusiasts continued to seek inspiration in new ways: In that same pandemic year, 21 million people visited the Louvre’s websiteThanks to a major website redesign and a new online collection database, browsing the historic museum’s holdings from home is easier than ever. For the first time ever, the Louvre’s entire art collection is available to search online. Read SMITHSONIAN Article here...

Social impact is at the heart of what drives many artists to create art in the first place, but many don’t know how to communicate that impact, let alone evaluate it credibly. Especially for those working in public spaces, in education, or with institutional support, it can be incredibly valuable to learn to understand and effectively communicate the impact of your creative endeavors and can help build relationships with stakeholders–from community-members to benefactors. Interested in learning more about impact as it relates to artists? The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is offering a free workshop in partnership with Spark Impact, an organization that works to build flexible, scalable, and replicable systems for both groups and individuals. This workshop will be taught by David Lavin, Director of Spark Impact, and participants will come away with practical tools and tips to aid them in their practice as artists and creatives. Register here...
