Creating Apart: Local Artists Respond to a Global Pandemic
An Exhibition at the Tweed Museum of Art
In the summer of 2020, filmmaker Mike Scholtz created a series of short videos about local artists who found themselves creating apart during the pandemic. These videos were just a small part of a larger project called “Stories of Wisdom from Bodies in Separation: Archiving the Coronavirus Pandemic Through the Lens of Humanities” which was organized by UMD professors David Beard and Devaleena Das. They received a CARES grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fund this project.
Stories of Wisdom from Bodies in Separation (SWaBS): Archiving the Coronavirus Pandemic Through the Lens of Humanities has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
