This has truly been an unprecedented time for us as a community, and for Cornerstones as a fledgling organization. COVID-19 has dramatically changed how we operate on a daily basis. No longer are art museums places where we can share space with total strangers, and find immediate connection through the shared experience of seeing and appreciating art. We are unable to use museums and art galleries as a means to transport people to faraway places, to consider things they may not have otherwise considered, or to simply reflect on where humanity has been and where it can go.
In this new realm, we need to find new ways for art to fill our spaces with conversations and connection. We know many of you are either home for an indefinite period of time by yourself, or perhaps home more with your children. Hopefully this has inspired you to either explore, or brighten your neighborhood with color! Are you seeing art in a neighbor’s window, or perhaps as a chalk drawing when you’re out walking the dog?
To us, Home is Where the Art is, and what a time for us to share little pieces of art that are now surrounding us daily. We will be sharing things that we’re finding in our communities, but we would also love to share what art you’re creating at home or seeing as you’re safely exploring your neighborhood. Share with us via our Facebook Page or tag us on Instagram (@CA_Cornerstones) (maybe we'll be on TikTok videos soon!), and use the hashtag #HomeiswheretheArtis and maybe we’ll feature your masterpiece on our account!
We have a lot of exciting things on the horizon, and we can’t wait to share and celebrate with you once we’re allowed to congregate again.
