Stopped in our tracks, mid stride, we were going about our regular lives and then….shut inside, cut off from friends and extended family, as well as work. We found ourselves reorienting our priorities, educating our children from home, seeking nooks and crannies to find a work space at home for days, then weeks to months. Though the shelter-in-place has lifted, most will continue on the same as under quarantine, staying home to keep ourselves and others safe by preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Artists are resourceful and resilient and through turning inward found in the retreat to home and through connecting in the virtual realm. They have created art that helps us all process both our time spent in quarantine and what we find now as we carefully step out into a world still coping with a pandemic. RAC supports the work of artists who are society’s meaning makers. As a smaller organization we can be more flexible and open up and make space for relevant artwork, fresh out of the hands of artists.
