In May 2020, Arts for Art introduced the On_Line Salon series to provide performance opportunities for our artists who lost all in-person gigs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, we've presented over 45 performances featuring 100 artists. Performances stream every Tuesday and Thursday. See the full schedule at https://www.artsforart.org/onlinesalon.

Arts for Art is dedicated to the exceptional creativity that originated in the African American multi-arts jazz culture that utilizes improvisation to express a larger, more positive dream of inclusion and freedom.
