Homer Council on the Arts created Art from the Heart in response to the isolation many of us experienced in the first year of the COVID-19 Pandemic, as well as the financial impact to artists during this time. We invited Homer performing artists whose income was threatened by the pandemic to submit proposals for a commissioned work. We paired the resulting performance pieces with original art by local K-12 students with the goal of creating connections and supporting community. The artwork and recorded performances were distributed to isolated seniors and at-risk individuals isolated due to the pandemic. Audio projects were also shared on KBBI AM 890. Thank you to the Homer Foundation for supporting this project!
