Post from Thursday, April 30, 2020
Friends and Artists,
Today we would like to take a moment to share a message of hope and connection. Though we remain isolate we all share the common experience of a pandemic that leaves every person continually processing a new way of life. Therefore this is not a time of solitude, but a time of community where we are brought closer together and away from loneliness.
Our new virtual reality has allowed us to see the world — and each other — in a whole new light. So until the day we can once again shake hands with our neighbors, enjoy hugs from loved ones, or enjoy our favorite galleries and restaurants, just remember that our connectivity is what carries us through this chapter. We are living in a new age of self-expression, exploration, and inspiration from others.
In the coming weeks, we will continue to be a source of hope, inspiration, and moral support. For more information about our mission, visit our website, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll see you on the other side!
