This Virtual Exhibit will visually depict how Art recorded History during the global health crisis of 2020 - 2021.  No matter what challenges are faced, life (though altered) will not stop and neither should Art.  As a mouth piece for history, Art provides a permanent record of our times - documenting so we never forget.  We build on what we learn in order to move forward.  

Fine Art artist Marcia Babler (and Northwestern University graduate) saw the restrictive confinement as an opportunity to express the role Art plays in our lives. Starting in July 2020, Babler used headlines as a foundation to develop visual stories of fear, frustration and hope.  Babler is grateful to the Dittmar Gallery Selection Committee for the honor to be selected for this exhibit.

Enter the virtual gallery and reflect on the twelve months of 2020 - 2021...
