SBAC COVID-19 Update

Latest Updates

April 15, 2020

Resin, the creative lab for South Bay Artist Collective remains closed due to Safer at Home requirements.

Our summer youth summer programs remain open for enrollment anticipating restrictions will be lifted by this time. We will continue to post updates here as more information becomes available. Please check our FAQs below for more specific information.

We are monitoring updates and sharing information about the coronavirus from trusted sources including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California Department of Public Health, and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.  If we all work together to do the right thing during this public health crisis, we’ll all be able to enjoy the art, yoga, meditation classes in a responsible and respectful way sooner rather than later.

Wishing you health and happiness,

The SBAC Team

South Bay Artist Collective Community, 

As of Monday March 16th, Resin will be temporarily closed.

All classes, events, and shows have been cancelled or postponed until further notice. 

While our mission is to support and grow the local arts community in the South Bay, our first priority is the health and safety of our community, artists, volunteers, and students.

Though we had been hoping to keep our space open so that our community may look to art for inspiration and solace in these uncertain times, we believe that closure is the best way for us to support public health officials in their efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Our team is currently looking for ways for our community and students to enjoy our wonderful classes and art in a digital space, and we will be sure to let you know about these initiatives. Sign up for our newsletter for the most up-to-date news. 

We are working to reschedule as many programs and events as possible in the future, and look forward to updating you on those plans. While we will not be putting on Water & Wood this March, we still plan to host this amazing show later in 2020. If you have already submitted and would still like your piece to be considered for the later show, we will keep your submission on file. If you have submitted and have sold the work, or would like to submit a different piece by the time of the later show, please feel free to submit new work. Stay tuned for more updates later in the year! 

SBAC will continue to monitor the situation to assess the need for the continued closure of our public spaces and will notify you immediately of any updates by email, our website, and through social media (@southbayartistcollective). If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at info@southbayartistcollective.org. We look forward to welcoming you back to Resin soon!
