A recent COVID-19 impact survey by the Arts Council of Indianapolis shows 95 percent of Indianapolis area creatives experience major financial loss because of the public health crisis.

From our Arts and Culture Desk, WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Faith Blackwell, owner and creative director of Faith Blackwell photography. Many of Blackwell’s clients are -- or were -- artists, small business owners, fashion designers and hospitality organizations.

Practicing social distancing, Ditmire interviewed Blackwell by phone.
