    The spring issue of Inside Arts is here!

    Although our full focus, and probably yours, is on managing the impacts of the pandemic, we wanted to make sure you saw this latest issue of our member magazine. You may notice that this issue doesn't talk about the Coronavirus. Written well before the outbreak, this issue celebrates the recent APAP|NYC conference.

    When you have a moment or need a moment away from crisis mode, we hope this provides you some solace, some stimulation, and some hope for what's to come once the pandemic passes.
