Stretch your portrait drawing skills, help heal a community, and be part of public art project/memorial. Begins: August 1, 2020, ongoing.
The Philadelphia Covid 19 Portrait Drawing Project brings together artists and community with the common goal of healing and rebuilding from the terrible loss of life exacted by the coronavirus. Artists in Philadelphia and beyond are giving their time, skill, and artistic passion by creating lively pencil drawings from photographs of those who have perished from the coronavirus. The drawing process encourages artists to spend time, in quiet solitude with their subject and is also a technical challenge—to not only make a strong piece but also to convey a human presence that honors those no longer with us. At present, the drawings are displayed online, but there is a larger plan in the works to create a large memorial that will bring together as many drawings as possible in a physical installation.

Those interested should email RA Friedman, project coordinator. rfried16@pratt.edu  He will send info and a photo from which to work. Pieces will be initially displayed online with the artist's name and web URL/instagram/Facebook address.
