The Art of Staying Home

Art is a reflection of our world, our culture and the time in which it’s created. And wow are we in a strange time! Little did we know, when we created an online collections archive for our client, Cincinnati Art Museum, that Covid-19 would sweep the world in 2020.

Four side-by-side comparisons from the Sanger & Eby CAM Creativity Challenge.
Published: 5.5.2020

The creative output inspired by a global shutdown has us inspired too. That’s why we’ve dug deep into our favorite collections at the Cincinnati Art Museum and re-created our own collection of pandemic-induced look-alike-masterpieces from items we found around our homes.
