Art in the Time of Quarantine (Virtual Exhibit)

Friday, Jun 19 – Aug 1, 2020

1957 Sheridan Rd.
Highland Park, IL 60035

The Art Center Highland Park (TACHP) put out a call for artwork made during the stay at home order, asking if it is still possible to connect through art and if so how? The seventy-three artists from twenty-two states throughout the US and one entrant from Russia, with over 160 works of art selected, express a range of ideas and emotions coming out of this time. As the guest juror, James Lynch, Executive Director TACHP noted, “The work in the exhibit reflects the varied filters that artists applied to this situation from landscapes to literal reflections and interpretations of the virus.”  How artists and galleries share their work may have changed, but the need to share reactions to the world are vital and continue to thrive as seen in this powerful virtual exhibit.
