Before the pandemic, Ohio's arts and culture was a $41 billion industry, rivaling the travel business and employing nearly 300,000 people. That all changed in March 2020 when the pandemic shuttered venues, closed museums and sidelined artists.
But not for long. Soon, artists and musicians took to social media and found new ways to keep the arts alive.
Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, as a part of WOSU's weeklong series A Year of COVID, we take a look at how the pandemic reshaped Ohio arts and what's to come.
