DURING THIS TIME OF CRISIS have you noticed that art is a key element is sustaining people? As an artist, what are the transformative realities you are expressing right now?
The effects of the highly infectious COVID-19 penetrates our lives even if our own physical bodies are not infected. The coronavirus has infiltrated our society and places an overwhelming burden on our psyche and physical well-being.
Isolation, loneliness, despair, boredom, stress, anxiety, alienation, and uncertainty, are some feelings we are experiencing while many are also witnessing the best of humanity as we cheer on hospital workers and scientists and support teachers and grocery workers with words of encouragement. People are finding comfort in music, art, and other creative expressions with new appreciation.
This global pandemic forces us to re-evaluate how we go about our daily lives and challenges us to explore who we want to be as a society on the other side of the crisis. According to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, “This is going to be transformative and formative for society.”…. It will most likely forever change how humanity moves forward. What does that look like to you? How is your outlook changing?
We are asking the artists to donate 50% of sales as a result of the exhibit to go to the Hoboken Relief Fund.
