Connecting with Art during covid-19


You might feel that your options for viewing original art has become extremely limited during covid-19. While some galleries and museums are slowly beginning to open-up their doors once again, most remain closed. At least more than one art gallery has chosen to do a virtual event or make online art viewing possible. The National Gallery of Victoria, in Australia, is wowing the world with a completely virtual exhibition called Crossing Lines. This well curated exhibition showcases Keith Haring and one of my absolute favourite artists, Jean-Michel Basquit. This show allows art lovers around the world to virtually tour more than 200 artworks that are on display at the gallery. There is a comprehensive audio guide to assist you through the show. It did take some time to figure out the navigation, a quick hint, tap the circles on the floor to move forward in the exhibit. As an art lover I fully appreciate that the National Gallery Of Victoria made this amazing show available to the world.
