Walker Art Center Poem

Description (Dublin Core)

Tweet from the Walker Art Center sharing a piece from their sculpture garden that relates to the need for social distancing. The piece is a placard with an inscribed poem that reflects on connection and the act of breathing. Museums have been relying on their collections to relate to the current pandemic, even in ways that are humorous or fall outside of meaning an artist may have originally intended.

Text (Omeka Classic)

Even when we're alone, we must remember we're together. During #COVID19, this bench in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden—part of #JennyHolzer's Living Series—serves as a reminder of connection... and to maintain a safe distance.
