Arts Incubator of Richardson has launched “AIR Creates,” a new online program that puts a spotlight on local talent. AIR features inventors, musicians, storytellers, authors, digital artists and visual artists on its website and social media pages to introduce the community to the artists, who may not be able to share their work currently because of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are a handful of artists already on the website and the group hopes more artists will participate. We spoke with organizers about the new digital program and what it means to local artists.

AIR is one of many organizations funded in part by the City through the Cultural Arts Commission.
