Following the drastic closures of major public gathering spaces, the artistic industry in the greater Boston area has taken a financial hit, according to WGBH Executive Arts Editor Jared Bowen.

Like restaurants and movie theaters, most artistic venues have closed their doors and canceled performances. Museums, like the Museum of Fine Arts, risk losing money due to the loss of income from on-site purchases. Other venues have lost income from ticket sales.

“I think we’re starting to see the first financial strains on institutions as they look at what happens for the next couple of months with no other incomes,” Bowen told Boston Public Radio on Friday. “In the museum case, it would be from parking and restaurants, admission sales and shop purchases. And then concert halls ... I think are really trying to figure out of how to move forward.”

Despite the uncertainty within the artistic community, Bowen said that it has also inspired artistic groups to continue to deliver content to fans through virtual means, allowing people to continue to enjoy their productions albeit in a smaller context.
