2020 Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

Americans for the Arts has been tracking the human and financial impacts of COVID-19 since the pandemic began. As the virus continues to rage in our communities, so does its devastation of the nation's arts sector. Cancellations have taken place at virtually every arts organization across the country, artists are among the most severely affected segment of the nation's workforce, and 1 in 10 arts businesses doubt their ability to survive.

We have released a NEW Impact of the Arts Survey. This new survey will continue to gather the impact data that are critical to our collective advocacy efforts. In addition, as we all follow the hopeful news about vaccine distribution, this survey also gathers information about the challenges facing the arts sector in the relief/recovery and re-opening processes.
