Over the past year, the devastating arrival of Covid-19 has impacted us all. As our society continues to wrestle with the challenges caused by the virus, the ability to process our individual and collective experiences has become all the more important. Inspired by the work of Makoto Fujimura, the Art Connects Initiative seeks to cultivate visions of shared connection and culture. Plans for the launch of a virtual art gallery to create space for vision formation are already underway. ArtConnects was established to support artists, giving them a platform for creative expression and increased visibility. Our goal is to connect people through art.
