April 2020 – as it became clear Covid 19 was going to have a long term effect on all of us, View proposed an exhibition of artworks created during and around this global crisis. We wondered what artists were making in their personal worlds. We asked them how they were responding to forced isolation; were they in their studios? What, during this time of distance, changed routines, new daily practices, unexpected hurdles and unanticipated effects have influenced them to create new work? 

This exhibit is the result. In the 81 works on display from almost 400 submissions from across the country we can see that artists found new inspiration and means to depict their fear, frustration, loneliness, anger, loss, and hope. There are photographs, sketchbooks, paintings, videos, and quilts. Some are poignant, some beautiful, some are roiled in the difficult news of the year. Together they represent a collective response to a specific and difficult moment in time.
