Omaha Artist Emergency Relief Fun to Assist Local Artists
by Stephanie Kidd
TAG recently partnered with Amplify Arts to create the Omaha Artist Emergency Relief Fund, which serves to assist artists of all disciplines in the Greater Omaha Area who have lost income due to the COVID-19 shutdown. We raised funds from the community at the end of March, and then opened up the applications for a week in April.
A jury of artistic professionals from the community will look over the applications and awards grants based on need. Thanks so much to our generous community members who donated to the fund. TAG matched the first $500 donated to the fund.
