Curatorial Statement
The past two years have had an immense physical and psychological impact on everyone emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic. Sometimes words cannot fully capture what often feels surreal and abstract. Whether you are thriving or grieving or somewhere in between, the work presented by these artists meets you wherever you are. The methods and materials gathered here range from the soft and soothing, to the vibrant and upbeat. Yet overall, there is an energetic throughline grounded in peace, hope and joy. Come fill up on what you need.

The Yard – Eastern Market is located at 700 Pennsylvania Ave. SE.
