Take Advantage of these FREE Virtual Performing and Visual Art Opportunities

Nothing compares to the feeling of walking up to a famous piece of art and experiencing it in person, or the exhilarating feeling of energy at a symphony, theatre production, or ballet.  There is something magical about being there live to experience art, but when that can’t happen, there are other ways to create the experience.  Many of these virtual tours and streamed performances have been something that we have been able to take advantage of for some time now, but many others are opening up online to let all of us have a virtual experience.  What is listed here is just a small sample of what is actually available.  Take advantage of these, have conversations about them at home, and then when the time is right, go out and create live experiences and support the beautiful arts world in person!  

There are also tons of virtual learning sites available for the performing and visual arts.  Stay tuned for a listing of some of those to be available soon!
