What will the arts economy look like once the pandemic is over? Indications so far are not good. Zoom concerts, Zoom plays, Zoom stand-up sets, Zoom choreography, Zoom book talks, Zoom gallery shows. Fortunately, artists are using the pause to organize. New advocacy groups have emerged, including the Music Workers Alliance and Artists at Work, that is intended to be a “WPA for the 21st Century,” employing artists to work on projects of immediate social benefit. Not giving them grants—the old model—but hiring them with salaries, benefits, and the recognition that, as artists, workers is precisely what they are.
