Presented by Nillumbik Shire Council, Art in the Time of COVID-19, opens on February 5, running until April 5.
The exhibition explores what has been an extraordinary and difficult period. In mid-2020, Nillumbik Shire Council invited artists from across the Shire and the nation to create works in response to COVID-19. The result of that call-out is this diverse exhibition of 36 newly-commissioned works, capturing these artists’ experiences of, and reflections on, the pandemic and its impacts.
