Searching for Beauty: A Collaboration with the Aristides Atelier

The COVID Pandemic’s icy fingers reached into every institution worldwide…even museums and art schools. Quickly we had to rethink learning, seeing, making, and sharing. All these months later, there is a light at the end of this challenging tunnel and artist’s views of this time are revealed through pigment on canvas.
