Artists who rely on income from contract labor, traveling gigs, and sales of work, have been adversely affected by the events of COVID-19. As we reinvent how we live and work during this unprecedented time, online platforms for supporting each other are more important than ever. Teréz Iacovino brought us an idea in conjunction with Virtual Connections: Together From a Distance, for SooVAC to organize Art Mart — a directory of MN artists selling work online in support of their livelihood.
