Art needs an audience, regardless of the form it may take. A song, a dance, a play, a poem, a painting, a story — without that unique act of sharing between an artist and an audience, any work of art is incomplete.

As the city, the nation and the world struggle to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, one of the unfortunate consequences of our collective efforts to remain healthy is that the chance to experience the arts properly has been severely curtailed. Performance venues will be shuttered for weeks, and arts groups and individual artists are having to adapt to a whole new way to getting what they do before an audience.

But Tulsa artists are getting inventive in carving out a virtual presence through dedicated websites and social media platforms and coming up with new ways to share their work with the world.
