Parma Art Scene

I recently read an article in April 21st The Nonprofit Times that really caught my attention. Covid-19 has had a devastating economic impact on America’s arts sector. Thousands of arts organizations across the country are reporting a $4.5 billion loss to date to their bottom line with an impact of $10.7 billion to our economy. Additionally, 94% have had to cancel their events. This data was culled from a Covid-19 Impact Survey by Americans For The Arts. 

Our creative individuals have to imagine what they wish to create, determine the steps to do so, work to produce it, find ways to promote it, and now due to social distancing, look for creative venues to sell it. Those creatives that can, are using virtual venues to do so. 

Prama Artspace Gallery is closed due to Covid-19. You can view the Gastronomy exhibit online at, Show Galleries tab, as well as boutique items on the Boutique tab. Artwork and boutique items are for sale. Contact owner and curator, Sean Mabin, at, if you are interested in purchasing any of these reasonably priced items. 

Here are more online exhibits:

Cleveland Institute of Art – Handled With Care, an online exhibit featuring painting, drawing, sculpture and more from Institute juniors. 

Ursuline Collage – Self Portraits-Artists Respond to Covid-19, a fully digital exhibit.
