Artist News: January Part II

Artist News: January Part II

Join NYFA affiliated artists’ exhibitions, screenings, readings, and performances to keep supporting the arts community. 

Today we’re reflecting on the role of art in society as we share this calendar of events. Art is here to generate dialogue; to help us understand the world we live in and to brainstorm solutions for its problems. If you’re looking for a safe space in the days to come, remember the power of art.
