The best art created by Washington Post readers during the pandemic
By Michael Cavna
Washington Post JULY 6, 2020
The Washington Post recently asked readers to share artwork that they have been creating during the pandemic, and received more than 650 submissions.
Art came from near (Washington and its surrounding states) and far (Germany and England, with a nod to Guatemala). The entrants spanned from tweens to artists in their 90s. And the choice of media included oil and acrylic, flowers, cinder blocks, a dryer sheet and hot glue.
The Post considered not only the quality and creativity of the art, but also the fascinating accompanying backstories. Enduring quarantines, some artists rendered what isolation and loneliness felt like, while others depicted longed-for social scenes from a pre-pandemic time.
