Help expand our commissioning budget for artists and writers.

About the Project

A Legacy of Publishing 
For 44 years ART PAPERS has published what are essentially snapshots of the world around us. We have captured historic moments, artistic movements, and cultural shifts. We have commissioned artists and writers to interpret what we are seeing, feeling, and experiencing, so that we can better understand and process what is happening to us, with us, and around us. 

Now is no different. 

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Art Papers felt a responsibility to double-down on our commitment to publishing. While live programs were cancelled or postponed by us, and so many others, we could still produce content. We are still commissioning artists and writers to produce editorial and artistic content for ART PAPERS magazine and ARTPAPERS.ORG. And we can deliver that content directly to people in their homes. Not only are we able to continue to financially support our contributors, we are also able to continue producing programming. 

About Living & Working
 
We started to commission the upcoming summer issue of ART PAPERS on the theme of Living & Working about a year ago. It’s never a bad time to check in on how artists are balancing the demands of making a living and making work. Little did we know how prescient that theme would become. 

Since the pandemic struck, we have received more pitches from artists and writers wanting/needing to respond to this crisis than our commissioning budget allows. Your donation through Power2Give will enable us to expand our commissioning capacity and publish more content in response to this pandemic within the pages of ART PAPERS magazine and on ARTPAPERS.ORG. 

Not only will your donation help financially support an artist or writer, it will also result in the publishing of more and varied voices on this moment that is reshaping the world around us. 


Double Your Impact
