It has been a time of deep transformation for us at United States Artists. In one of the most complicated years in recent history—an ongoing pandemic, an uncertain economy, and the moral confrontation of our society’s responsibility to equity and justice for all—our organization dedicated the past year to listening and learning together.
We know it’s been a year like no other, and we are grateful for the ability to continue supporting artists across the country. From everyone at United States Artists, we wish you a warm and peaceful new year.
Thank you for believing in artists!
