ART Launches ARTful Wednesdays During This Work From Home Time
ART (Accessories Resource Team), the creative home furnishings network, announced that it will launch a new virtual series, ARTful Wednesdays. “None of us have experienced anything like this COVID-19 situation before. Most of our member companies are under mandate to work from home and we feel the loss of connecting with each other”, said Lois Del Negro, Global Views and President of ART. “Networking is one of our association’s strengths and we’re missing out on that opportunity with our annual conference cancellation which was scheduled for this week and then no Spring Market either. We are launching a virtual schedule that incorporates education and network community time to make up for our loss of connectivity.”The first ARTful Wednesday is ART Talks on April 8 and it will be a member community hangout. The webinar session on April 15 will be open to the industry – Trends from Maison Objet presented by Patti Carpenter, carpenter + company Global Trend Ambassador and sponsored by Maison Objet. For more information on these sessions and more, visit the ART website events page. More Wednesday sessions will be added to the schedule as they become available.
