In April, Skye Skinner took over as the Art Base's interim executive director. One of her first tasks was guiding the Basalt organization through their closure during the stay-at-home order.

Skinner worked to move art classes online, secure a payroll protection loan and provide over 600 art kits to local children. 

"I’m determined that the Art Base, which is small but mighty, will come through this crisis with strength and a view toward a bright future," she said.
