Bunnell starts Emergency Artist Fund

Bunnell Street Arts Center has started an Emergency Artist Fund as well as a Postcard Project to thank those working for human health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Artists are invited to create Mail Art postcards for those who work in critical services. The theme is “My art loves your art.” Send handmade 4×6 postcards to Bunnell Street Arts Center, 106 W. Bunnell Ave., Suite A, Homer, AK 99603 USA.

“Creating art heals, connects and inspires us in times of isolation and challenge,” a press release from Bunnell said.

People also are invited to contribute to an emergency fund for artists who have lost work due to program cancellations (exhibits, residencies, Artist in Schools, workshops, concerts, performances, tours, talks, readings and classes). Receive a hand-made postcard for giving to this fund. To make contributions, visit

As a reminder to be safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Homer artist Julie Tomich painted face masks on the figures of Tom Reed’s mural, “Tribute to Performing Artists,” as seen on July 3, 2020, on Pioneer Avenue in Homer, Alaska. Reed painted the mural in August 1985 on a retaining wall in front of NOMAR (then Proctor’s Grocery), and updated the mural with additional figures in 2008 under a city grant. Using a chalk-based, non-permanent paint, Tomich got permission from the city to add the masks to the mural. (Photo by Michael Armstrong/Homer News)
