COVID-19 has profoundly changed the contours of our daily lives. At this time of great loss and physical distancing, many of us have turned to creative outlets to help us cope, express our anguish, and gain agency when we feel helpless. “Together apART: Creating During COVID” features more than 250 works of painting, photography, sculpture, sewing, crafting, songwriting, poetry and other creative activities by 224 artists and community members from throughout the Hudson Valley. All of the exhibited works were made between March 2020 and March 2021.
How To Enjoy Your Virtual Tour on Your Computer or Other Personal Device
To learn more about each work of art, we invite you to join us on a virtual tour from your home computer or other personal device. There are 13 tour “stops” throughout the gallery. Each stop organizes works into themes and offers you an opportunity to delve deeper into individual stories shared by our artists. During your in-person visit use the QR codes on the walls to access individual stops, or go to www.artsw.org/togetherapart to access the complete library of tour stops.
Once at a stop, scroll through individual works. To access artist statements and other details about the works, click on the artwork thumbnail in the lower left of your screen and the “i” icon. There is some audio on the tour. We encourage you to enjoy insights from the artists, music, or other performance works on personal headphones or at a modest volume. Note that some works in the virtual tours may not be on view in the gallery.
