BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – In such an unprecedented time, it’s hard to get a taste of art in our every day lives.
Although the Beckley Art Center remains closed due to pandemic concerns, executive director Robby Moore wants to make sure everyone still has access to its exhibits. Since March, the art center has hosted a series of art chats about some of the pieces on display.
In an age of social distancing, fear and uncertainty, Moore says art is exactly what people need.
“If you can distract your mind just a little bit from that and consider art and beauty and all of those wonderful things in life, that can be a positive to bring a little brightness to everyone,” said Moore.
The next art chat is scheduled for tomorrow. You can find previous art chats on their website and the art center’s Facebook page.
