    Friday, August 14, 2020Category: Americans for the Arts NewsEspecially during the COVID-19 pandemic, the health needs of artists and creative workers are critical to preserve and maintain. That’s why we love this week’s story about the O+ Festival, which was hatched after a dentist and a painter mulled over the idea to exchange visual art and musical performances for healthcare. Also this week: employers love creative skills, Chambers of Commerce write to Congress in support of the arts, and it's time to take the ArtsVote Pledge to Make Your Vote Count!

Congress is currently negotiating a new coronavirus relief bill, and two letters asking for relief for the arts went to Capitol Hill this week: one signed by one of our longest-standing strategic partners, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and another led by our Artists Committee and signed by more than 260 artist advocates.
