The COVID-19 pandemic closed buildings for adult day programs serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Outside the Box is one of those programs and serves an average of 200 adults each week. Its education-based curriculum and activities include a highly-praised arts program, Studio OTB, in which professional artists teach classes and work with clients.
From WFYI's Arts and Culture Desk, Jill Ditmire spoke with Studio OTB coordinator Cait Renk about its pivot to serve clients during the public health crisis. Renk joined the conversation by phone.
