Or: Returning to Oz
You ever go back to a place you used to visit a lot — a school, or theater, or music club — but then didn’t for, like, a year?
Yeah, that’s kinda what I feel like right now.
Last July I contracted with a local arts org for a paid full-time temp job, which was great for paying off my undergrad student loan (yay!), not so great for focused editorial content.
Then, in January, this Jellybean joined our family, so the first half of 2020 has been busy with her. And staying healthy from the global pandemic. And sorting out how we can be anti-racist. And watching entirely too much Food Network.
So, here we are, July. Let’s pick up where we left off, huh?
There are still amazing local artists of all genres doing really interesting, indeed inventive artwork during quarantine.
Let’s go find them.
