Pet portraits for the win

While Redux Contemporary Art Center is temporarily closed for the foreseeable future, the nonprofit is ramping up its online offerings. As executive director Cara Leepson says, "Our aim is to keep you inspired and fulfilled with the arts, even from a distance."

Redux is rolling out these new options on Instagram — be sure to check in with their stories to stay the most up-to-date. You can follow along as studio artists, like Anne Abueva, take over the Instagram account and walk you through their days. Hey, maybe you'll get inspired to pick up an easel, eh?

In addition to seeing what studio artists are up to, you can also get a little art for yourself. Show your new, four-legged coworker(s) some love with coloring page pet portraits from Redux artist Julia Deckman.

Email a PDF photo of your pet to to get yours for $50.

If you want to help Redux, a nonprofit organization, you can always donate online, or become a member.
