The local arts community has always been well-loved and well-supported.
With many Chapel Hill- and Triangle-area art galleries, theaters, music venues and concert hubs making the difficult decision to close until further notice due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, it may feel like the arts community ceases to exist.
But the arts desk at The Daily Tar Heel has every plan in place to keep the show running.
Our reporters are working diligently to bring the local community the most up-to-date information not only regarding closures and future plans for these arts venues, but we also have more human interest stories in the works to show how the arts community is still going strong.
The stage may be empty and the gallery may be closed, but the arts is still very much alive, and we intend to capture how our community continues to support local art in all its forms over the course of the next few weeks and months.
