Artists have been busy during the COVID-19 pandemic creating some work that will be shared with the world in an upcoming exhibition.

'Creating Apart: Local Artists Respond to a Global Pandemic' is opening soon at the Tweed Museum of Art which is located on the campus of the University of Minnesota Duluth.

The exhibition will feature work from local artists like Ivy Vainio, Moira Villiard, Sarah Brokke Erickson, and Karen Savage Blue all curated by Annie Dugan, an art history teacher at the College of St. Scholastica and the University of Wisconsin Superior.

The exhibition will also include a documentary made by local filmmaker Mike Scholtz who takes a look at some "virtual experiments" that artists have tried during the global pandemic.

'Creating Apart: Local Artists Respond to a Global Pandemic' is just a part of a larger project called 'Stories of Wisdom from Bodies in Separation (SWaBS): Archiving the Coronavirus Pandemic through the Lens of Humanities,' which is being organized by a couple of UMD professors.
