| Letter to editor submission
Your commitment to all the voices and news of the Greenville community, expressed in your Aug. 23 newspaper is welcome and overdue. Your recent coverage of the ways COVID-19 has impacted individuals and businesses already demonstrates that commitment.
However, today and every Sunday in recent memory, the Arts section neglects the voices of Greenville area artists, arts venues, and arts organizations. They are vital to the attraction of Greenville as a tourist destination and to the local economy.
During the coronavirus pandemic, area art galleries operate under reduced hours and with limited numbers of visitors as they practice safe distancing. Many musicians, dancers, actors and others in the performing arts depend on their other jobs for revenue and are, like other workers in the community, underemployed or unemployed.

Nonetheless, many arts organizations have found innovative ways to connect with their audiences, including free online performances and virtual art galleries. With better news coverage, more people could take advantage of these opportunities.
The Greenville News should always feature local arts and art events in the Sunday Arts section to show your support for our lively arts community and to let the public know about their talented neighbors.
