Institutions of art and culture
In the United States, as well as all around the world, many institutions of culture and art were closed during the pandemic. At the same time, employees of such organizations had to take unpaid leaves or were fired. The current situation may lead to negative consequences in the future. According to preliminary estimates, 13% of museums will not open even after the crisis ends. The reason for this is a lack of funding. However, US citizens believe that cinemas, libraries, and museums will remain highly popular, while 62% of Americans support the idea of providing government assistance to institutions of culture.
