Global Impact: The Wake of Covid will be an all media exhibition focusing on what artists have been working on with the global impact of COVID-19. We are asking artists “What have you been creating in response? How has your work shifted due to self-isolation and quarantine? How have your perspectives changed?” All media is considered for this international submission for a physical and online exhibition.
