During the past 2+ months of the current COVID-19 crisis, many of us have been forced to self quarantine in our own homes. This has resulted in re-examining our own spaces and perhaps viewing our surroundings in a whole new way. For most of us who have been in our homes for many consecutive days, these rooms are familiar to us, but the circumstances are new. Snaps From My Home offered a creative opportunity to blend the familiar with the unfamiliar. Artists were prompted to notice spaces in their home. Did they see repetition, light on the patio, repetition of a color? They returned to similar items, and found new ones. They changed their point of view. They got creative in seeing ‘home’ in a new light.
Snaps From My Home is curated by Stacey Evans and Kristen Chiacchia.
