About Art Is Live

Developed by Marta Sanchez and Caroline Davis, Art is Live is a platform to show the work of a collective during the quarantine. The first performance premiered on April 17th, 2020 and will continue until venues return to regular programming.

We will feature the work of different artists 3-5 times a week. The performances will be varied and showcase what artists are working on, including concerts, improvisations, multimedia projects, and beyond.

All the artists involved have lost their work scheduled for the upcoming months, which means they have not only lost money, but also the opportunity to express themselves and communicate with audiences.

If you are in a position where you can contribute, please consider donating to help these artists during this difficult time. Each month, the money will be divided evenly among the artists sharing their creations with you.
