COVID-19 Public Health Issues and the Arts, part 2 – Thursday, February 25, 9-10 am

Due to high demand, Arts Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Arts Board will present a second COVID-19 Public Health Issues and the Arts session on Thursday 2/25/21 from 9:00 – 10:00 am with Dr. Laura Cassidy, Professor and Director of Epidemiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

While the January 29th session with Dr. Cassidy focused primarily on issues of concern to WI’s performing arts organizations, this session will focus more on WI’s visual and multi-disciplinary arts organization concerns.   

Dr. Cassidy is a noted expert in issues related to safely presenting and producing the arts in venues and public spaces during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Her presentation will provide the latest updates from state and national experts on what’s happening with vaccine distribution, safety protocols for indoor and outdoor events, audience capacity levels, and mask wearing for staff, volunteers and audiences.  The session will include plenty of time for questions.

Speaking of questions, we’re taking them in advance!  Send yours to Anne Katz, Arts Wisconsin, at
