Introducing Love is Airborne

Throughout the pandemic, we have found ourselves navigating an unprecedented interpersonal landscape. The nature of our relationships has changed, whether you are trying to maintain a commitment from 6 feet apart, or you are quarantined and looking for love on the internet. MFA invites artists of all mediums to examine the ways romance has prevailed through isolation. Works entered into this all-hang will be on display in MFA’s online Voting Gallery through April 30th, 2021.
