Twenty Summers Emergency Arts Fund
TWENTY SUMMERS is dedicated in engaging with leading and emerging artists and cultural figures while fostering the creation of new work. Though the mission has typically been achieved through distinctive programs at the infamous Hawthorne Barn — where Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Tennessee Williams and other icons once created or presented new work — they know that drastic times call for drastic measures, and sometimes new initiatives as well.
That is why Twenty Summers is launching an Emergency Arts Fund (EAF) for artists and arts organizations facing unmanageable financial loss as a result of the Coronavirus. EAF is the first nationwide initiative that supports both artists and arts organizations, gives artists a chance to promote their work from home, and stimulates and connects art-lovers during a time of social isolation. They’ll raise EAF funds from their existing supporters, as well as get the word out through a new digital series, Art Interrupted.
