CLEVELAND — A new art collection is attempting to show what local communities, the country, and even the world have been going through the past few months.

"Art made in Shutdown" is a gallery exhibit at the Worthington Yards Apartment Complex in downtown.

More than one hundred artists have contributed pieces that speak to a collective experience.

"What the process has been is me doing a lot of research on how art is impacting, and how it has impacted and how we can as citizens use art as a way to transcribe history and reflect the times of what we're going through now," artist Antwoine Washington said.

Washington's piece in the exhibit is a reflection on the pandemic, the fight for racial injustice, and the correlation between social distancing and the segregation Black people have faced for centuries.

If you'd like to see the art in person, they will be hosting an open house on July 25 from noon to 4 p.m.
