To financially support artists and nurture their creative process during these challenging times, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, announces Works & Process Virtual Commissions. With the generosity of the board, Works & Process will grant $40,000 in commissioning funds to artists who have been featured at Works & Process. Artists from a wide variety of genres have been commissioned to create new works, less than 5 minutes long, while observing social distancing guidelines, that will premiere on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube (@worksandprocess) every Sunday and Monday at 7:30pm starting on April 19:

 SELECT ARTIST RESPONSES:

"What a wonderful way to support the dance community. Obviously, all of their performance fees are gone, but also so many work in restaurants or as yoga instructors and those gigs are on hold as well. I was just thinking about how I didn't know where my next dollar was going to come from and you answered that!"

"I'd love to donate my fee to a dancer who cannot legally file for unemployment and is stuck in New York."

"I'm so happy to hear that you've reached out to so many artists in my web of collaborators -- I'm, of course, experiencing personal hardship, but I'm much more broken up about the hardship that my collaborators are experiencing. Thanks for what you do."

"As soon as I read your email my head started going on ideas and I started experimenting. Thanks for reaching out and triggering my brain to experiment at home during this time!"
