Radical creativity will keep us together

Dear Friends,
 
Ingenuity, spontaneity, and disruptive thinking come naturally to artists and we’ve witnessed an unprecedented amount of creativity in the last week. These artistic expressions are more than diversions—they keep us together when the normal order of life is interrupted.  
 
Guild Hall will continue to promote the creativity in all of us through online programs and live activities, but for the safety of our community, the physical space of The John Drew Theater, the Guild Hall Museum, and our Classroom will remain closed through May 31, 2020. 
 
We are working with the many talented artists associated with Guild Hall to provide you with experiences to be enjoyed from home. We are also in the midst of an effort to put the 400 works in the 82nd Artist Members Exhibitiononline for you to view remotely.
 
Most of you have interacted with our wonderful staff, and they are attending to their duties from home. We are available nearly around the clock via email. Please feel free to reach out to Executive Director, Andrea Grover at agrover@guildhall.org, or to the man behind the social media curtain, Joe Brondo at jbrondo@guildhall.org. A full directory of Guild Hall staff contacts can be found here: https://www.guildhall.org/about/staff.
 
We want to hear from you. Tell us how you’re doing, and what we can do for you. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Andrea Grover 
Executive Director 
 
Jeannine Dyner 
Deputy Director
