With its events being canceled, the Decatur Area Arts Council has learned to make the most out of the situation.
Jerry Johnson with the Decatur Area Arts Council indicates March and April are the two biggest fundraising months for the arts council. Their biggest fundraiser, Corks and Forks, at the end of April will be conducted in an online format.
Johnson says they have canceled their art galleries for April and May but are hoping to be able to have their summer exhibit.
The Decatur Area Arts Council's annual fund drive, Color Our Community, is being conducted through the mail. Johnson says they appreciate anything anyone can give at this time. Approximately fifteen percent of their annual budget is raised traditionally during March an
Johnson notes if things start to open back up, they are looking at a fundraising event for June or July. To contribute visit decaturarts.org.
