Indianapolis Artist Johnny McKee Talks About The Effect Of The Outbreak On Daily LIfe

Provided by Johnny McKee

Many artists rely on multiple income sources. Not only do they make, show and sell art, they work in the hospitality industry or teach classes. The COVID-19 health crisis essentially put a halt to those options.

WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Indianapolis-based artist Johnny McKee about the effect of the outbreak on his daily life.

McKee and other Harrison Center artists created a “Social Distance Art Window Walk” at the Harrison Center. People can view from their car, or keep a 6-foot distance from others, while enjoying the nearly 40 windows on the basement level of the building at the corner of 16th and Delaware streets.

Practicing social distancing, McKee joined the conversation by phone.
