This Week In The Arts – Virtual Edition (Week 8)

May 07, 2020

Here at Ovation, it’s no secret that we care about the arts. And we know that, as visitor of our channel, you do too.

Collectively, as a nation, we’ve never spent this much time at home. And it is now, more than ever that we seek educational, entertaining, and time-worthy content to fill our minds.

In addition to our standard programming, we thought that we owed it to you, our loyal viewers, to curate a list of some of the best virtual: museums, virtual performances, galleries… that we’ve seen circulating around the internet, so that YOU don’t have to spend time looking for it! So that YOU can appreciate the arts that you love even during these difficult times. So that YOU can relax. No stress, no overwhelming amount of options; one list for you to enjoy from the safety & comfort of your own computer.

Tune back in every week to the POWER OF ART section of our homepage on Ovationtv.com or on our social media pages for a brand new list!

Enjoy, and hope you and your family are safe and well!
