Lexington in the Time of COVID-19
An artwork about people practicing social distancing at a time of a deadly virus. And also offering kindness.
In Lexington, Kentucky, the universities and public schools closed on Friday, March 13th. Faith communities were asked to suspend their services.
Major social events were canceled, including the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Public libraries shuttered, too.
Everyone has been asked to practice social distancing. This is hard, even for the introverts among us and even if we call it something else, like “physical distancing,” in order to affirm our lasting commitment to community.
On Monday, March 16th, the first day the changes impacted many of us, we started this new artwork--two or three photographs captured every day.
