This community building project is a temporary modular structure to showcase artwork by local artists, educational institutions, and other community members. This working group proposed that artworks could be themed to reflect the artist’s experience during COVID-19, how they coped with quarantine, and what message can they share from that experience.
Each piece is inserted into a picture frame that rotates around a rod or a dowel. The artwork can be placed on one side with its description on the other side. The frames collectively create a mosaic wall rotating to create a dynamic rhythm. The materials required for the project are low-cost and easily acquired.
