OHHS Art and Design Teacher Featured in the "Art in the Time of Corona" Online Exhibition

"Art in the Time of Corona", organized by SOS ART, consists of Artists responses to the Covid 19 pandemic. The exhibition is being held online due to the ongoing pandemic crisis and its resulting necessary social distancing. For this collective art show, Artists were invited to submit their artwork, in any medium, dealing with their responses to the pandemic. This could be regarding how they have been personally, or through family, friends and others they know, affected by the pandemic and the changes it has generated, or their reflection on the local, national, and international social and political reactions and events that the crisis has triggered. 110 greater Cincinnati artists submitted 209 artworks for the show. Their media were varied including drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures, fabric, etc. and their subject quite diverse. They addressed direct effects of the Covid pandemic such as social isolation and loneliness, loss and separation, sickness and death, the world turned upside down, new modes of communication, new discoveries and new ways of coping, the resort to spirituality, the role of information (and misinformation), the role of science… and also addressed societal and political events triggered or unveiled by the pandemic.

The work of OHHS Art and Design teacher Jamie Schorsch, “Pandemic Nexus”, is featured alongside the work of 109 greater Cincinnati artists in the SOS ART “Art in the Time of Corona” online exhibition.
