WUSF Public Media announces the launch of a free, new online streaming service called ArtsAxisFL.org for users across the nation to stream and enjoy performances from a wide variety of arts groups and cultural institutions in Florida.
Now, no matter where you live, you can watch performances of music, theater, dance and museum presentations for free from the comfort of your home.
WUSF Public Media in Tampa Bay, Fla., announces the launch of a free, new online streaming service called ArtsAxisFL.org for users across the nation to stream and enjoy performances from a wide variety of arts groups and cultural institutions in Florida.
The free service launches as a new way to bridge a divide created by COVID-19 precautions – as arts groups around the country look for new ways to reach their audiences, and on the other side, those audiences look for safe, meaningful ways to enjoy and support their favorite destinations.
To access the service, users simply go to ArtsAxisFL.org – no login, fee or password required – and select from a wide range of arts categories and genres, including Classical music, Jazz, Opera, Performance Theater, Cultural Destinations and Dance.
Some examples include:
• Classical music performances from The Florida Orchestra
• Presentations by art historians at the Salvador Dali museum
• Videos by art curators at the James Museum for Western & Wildlife Art
• Stage performances by the Sarasota Ballet
“The launch of Arts Axis Florida is the culmination of months of remote work during the pandemic,” said JoAnn Urofsky, WUSF’s general manager.
“This service is designed to bring the performances of nonprofit arts organizations throughout Tampa Bay and Sarasota directly to the community. You can watch, listen and enjoy wherever you are. We’re grateful to the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay for their vision in supporting this arts connection for the community. Besides being a welcome respite from the turmoil of our extraordinary year, the groups that bring us the creative arts stand worthy of our support. With all the challenges that COVID-19 precautions have put before us as a nation, we hope Arts Axis Florida can meet the need for an exciting, free and accessible platform for all of us to enjoy the arts that so enrich our lives.”
