In this week's curated care package for you, we've selected a far flung cross-section of artistic work and performance.
There's something for everyone, from a moving theatrical event, to the gift of mandalas, visual art that celebrates the music of trees, and satirical video capturing the everyday absurdities of the present moment.
Mandalas for a Time of Quarantine
DOEprojekts is the socially-engaged collaborative art practice co-directed by LMCC SU-CASA artists, Deborah Adams Doering and Glenn N. Doering.
Since the start of the stay at home period, DOEprojekts have created beautiful mandalas out of everyday objects. Check these beautiful mandalas on Instagram @DOEprojekts and learn more about their work.
As a way to participate in "Distant Socializing," if you would like DOEprojekts to create or locate a mandala image for you, or a person or people you care about, they are happy to do it as a gift, and send the image to you and/or your friend(s). It may take a bit of time, but they will do it!
Email DOEprojekts@gmail.com and with more about how you hope to use a mandala image, and for whom. They will email and set a schedule.
We love the lightness that LMCC Workspace 2018-2019 alum Eliza Bent brings to her quarantine experience through humorous song and poetry.
Check out Eliza's videos on Instagram @getbentobox and get a glimpse of one artist's vignettes of life at home.
