Day 11 – Art during coronavirus pandemic

Art in the time of Corona – hope and positivity through creativity” is an art project featuring art during coronavirus pandemic, which was announced the very next day after the national lockdown was declared by the Prime Minister of India on the night of 24th March 2020. This unique art project is managed by Indiaart and Khula Aasmaan. It has been supported by Finolex Industries and Mukul Madhav Foundation. We are fully committed to the best practices of social distancing, stay home and stay safe. Our appeal of fighting the Covid-19 pandemic with creativity of art has been well received by people of all age groups and professions. The participants in the art project – “Art in the time of Corona” are from diverse domains – school children, college students, working professionals, homemakers and senior citizens. Most of them are self taught. They all have created art during coronavirus pandemic with whatever they could get at home as the shops were closed during national lockdown.
