“The Cure,” oil on canvas, by Halie Torris

Introducing Six Feet of Separation

A new “normal” is here: whether you are in your home or in the yard or on a bike – it’s all about keeping you and others safe. Express how you are coping (or not) and staying creative. Entries, following exhibition guidelines, are open to all original 2-D or 3-D artwork related to the theme. The artwork will be displayed in MFA’s online Curve Gallery from May 25 – July 22, 2020.
