Abide featured the work of sixteen local professional and semi-professional, working artists. The installation sought to illuminate the important role of art in helping individuals and communities endure the COVID-19 pandemic. The work was showcased to demonstrate the importance of supporting artists, now more important than ever, as their livelihood has been threatened by the crisis.
Abide hung at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley from 01.19.21-04.18.21
