With museums closed and concerts on pause, it can be hard to get your art-scene fix these days. However, local musicians, artists, and creatives are going digital, and bringing their work right into your home. With at-home concerts, virtual creative classes, and so much more, there are plenty of ways to stay in tune with your artsy side, while still staying safe and staying put.

Read on for a list of local creativity you won’t want to swipe past:


BRQ & BRSO – An @Home Concert Experience is happening tonight at 7:30 p.m. What better way to wine and dine than while supporting two amazing local organizations. While the deadline for food orders has ended already, tickets for the event are still available online for $25.
