In March, we celebrate Women’s History Month and Saint Patrick’s Day. This March, we also celebrate COVID-19 vaccines and a little more freedom, as we begin to venture out. March also marks the one-year anniversary of our city closures due to the pandemic ~ restaurants, schools, shops ~ the works. It was the birth of a new way of communicating through online meetings, workshops, classes, gallery exhibits, and more. Social media became an unexpected benefit for all those who were, under normal circumstances, unable to attend in-person events ~ the elderly, disabled ~ the many New Yorkers who are homebound.

In recognition of all those we’ve lost, and those affected by COVID-19, we begin this month’s post with a link to the public art project titled “In America, How Could This Happen” by artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg. Let us take a moment to think about this past year, loved-ones lost, and what we’ve learned.

It has been a long and slow slog to November, with art installations and exhibitions echoing this sentiment. The Rubin Museum will create space on an entire floor dedicated to social and emotional learning; Zag Landsberg’s ‘Reclining Liberty‘ pretty much portrays our feelings thus far; while others look to a brighter future ~ Isolation to Revolution/Rebirth to Dissent at Pen + Brush; Unweave a Rainbow at Vito Schnabel Projects; ‘We Fight to Build a Free World‘ at Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, ‘Light of Freedom’ unveils in Madison Square Park, and the exhibition, 20/20 at David Zwirner Gallery, speculating anxiously , rethinking and looking for a vision beyond. All of the  events, exhibits and installations in November consider social distancing and offer a wonderful way to step-out in a safe way. Here are a few suggestions.

Moving into the month of July, artists reflect in their artwork the very sentiment in our featured image entitled, Besieged, by artist Jerome Lagarrigue in the current exhibition Young Artists: One at Fridman Gallery. Best said by the gallery, here they “hope to not only create space for the voices of artists, but also to directly address the issues of systemic racism…..” Art institutions, museums and galleries are doing just that.
