ARTIST_STIMULUS directly support artists affected by COVID19


So maybe you are one of the lucky ones and you’ve received $1200 from the government. Maybe you have been considering how to use part or all of it to help others. Through Artist Stimulus, you can support artists affected by the economic crisis by purchasing work directly from them.

The artists on this site are all experiencing acute economic difficulties. Opportunities to show and sell work dried up overnight. Museums and galleries furloughed their employees. Work bartending and waiting tables quickly became a dream for some distant future. Overall hours were cut. And many are still having trouble getting the $1200 from the government that was promised.

You can help now! When you buy a work from an artist on the site, they receive 100% of the proceeds, and your eyes receive a fresh new object to contemplate in quarantine!

How it works:

When you find something you like, click “message artist” to send a message to the artist.
Please be specific in which piece you would like to purchase, as the artist might have serveral for sale on this site.
You and the artist will coordinate payment and mailing details.

Shipping is not included in the price.

Work is available on a first come, first served basis. Once payment to the artist has been received, that piece will be removed from the website.

As the word spreads we hope to have new artists offering work on a regular basis, so check back often!


This is not curated, any artist in need can send work to post. Want to submit? Send a message using the “contact” link at the top of the page!
