2020 Arts Issue


A preview of the current state of the Atlanta Art community during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

In August of 2019, Creative Loafing published a preview guide to static and performance arts events scheduled for the fall season. This year, we’re checking in with many of those same arts organizations to find out what is in the offing this fall for Atlantans interested in the arts, given the new reality imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.

For the special “Fall Arts Guide,” a small group of editors and writers put together four sections: Visual Arts, Classical Music, Theater and Dance. We also included a deeper look at the health of Atlanta's Performing Arts Theaters
