We give Philadelphia artists a creative spark to pursue their art

Artists Involved With SBMA

SBMA On Pause

In recent weeks, we’ve heard from dozens of artists who have had projects, events and other creative contracts postponed or canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and national emergency plans.  We know these cancellations have a direct impact on your ability to pay bills, take care of your families and continue your creative work.

Although SBMA is on hiatus until Summer 2020, we will immediately restart our monthly newsletter and begin to send a weekly resource email to continue to connect artists to timely local and national resources.
