Above: Our "COVID Art History Collage" was inspired by Sandro Botticelli and Amedeo Modigliani.
What is the best that can be said about the year 2020 (other than it is almost over)? It was a socially distancing, zoom-group-chatting year, allowing us to view artist symposiums and exhibitions online; it was also a year in which DOEprojekts (Deborah Adams Doering and Glenn N. Doering) persevered to create art and community through diverse creative projects. In addition, we taught art to several groups online, and took time to visit whatever museums and galleries were open in person (with masks, of course).
We participated in "Masked NYC," a thoughtful and diverse documentary project by photographer AJ Stetson. We wore our custom-made Coreform masks (and Deborah wore a Coreform shirt) to Stuyvesant Square Park in Manhattan to be photographed. We were introduced to AJ by our artist/photographer friend Todd Drake, who took the photo of us shown at the conclusion of this blog post. More of AJ's work can be seen at www.ajstetson.com, and Todd's multimedia work can be seen at www.the-equalist.com.
