(KRDO) -- Artists Sunday is celebrated on Sunday, November 29th, and over two dozen Colorado Springs artists are hoping it'll be their own version of a Black Friday. Planted squarely in the midst of the largest holiday shopping weekend of the year, Artists Sunday aims to make the Sunday after Thanksgiving the arts’ most profitable day for artists annually, boosting sales for creators of art, crafts, and handmade items while encouraging consumers to purchase art as holiday gifts. “Colorado is proud to be a part of this nationwide effort to support the creative class,” said Margaret Hunt, director of Colorado Creative Industries. “Artists Sunday is a great way to support local artists, celebrate creativity, and find unique, meaningful gifts for everyone who appreciates the arts.” The day is dedicated to encouraging consumers to shop with artists and give something special, unique, and hand-crafted this holiday season. More than 30 local Colorado Springs artists, with many more across the state of Colorado, have joined the alliance. The artists are hoping to the day will be a boost financially. The economic hit on the arts and culture sector in the United States has topped $13.1 billion, according to an ongoing survey by Americans for the Arts. A staggering 96% of organizations have canceled events totaling 96 million in lost in-person attendance, which has been challenging for artists to earn an income without in-person, customer-facing events.

Our number had been a double digit contraction in Q2 but a mid-single digit contraction in Q3. Now while there has been a very pleasant surprise in case of Q2, I am not more confident that incrementally learn more here Q3 numbers will be proportionately better. A positive number can be expected only in the next financial year. The government has made it very clear that states can consider local measures but they cannot stop inter and intra state movements. They also cannot impose any kind of a lockdown, a local lockdown. How effective would these measures be to contain the spread of Covid-19 and to ensure that business activity continues? Rural India is doing relatively better, agriculture is doing well and that is a very significant buffer in a year like this. In fact, in Q2 we are seeing the effect of the summer crop. In the case of Q3, we will possibly see the effect of both the summer crop and the winter crop and winter crop sowing at this moment is very strong, a 20% plus uptick from the previous year’s level winter crop.
