2020 Vision at a Stunning Art Exhibit in Southampton

As we bid the year 2020 goodbye, these visuals and testimonies from the Southampton Arts Center exhibit “2020 Vision” remind us again of how much the world has endured in just 10 short months. We’re sharing our photos from the contemporary art group exhibit “2020 Vision,” featuring paintings, works on paper, sculpture and photography. It’s a display of contemporary art about social justice and BLM, COVID-19, and life in 2020. The show has been extended until January 3, 2021 – so it’s not too late to see it for yourself. And it’s free!

See the Stunning New Textile Art Exhibit at the MoMA

New York City is coming back to life this fall after a brutal spell of loss and lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. The surest sign that there is reason for hope? Our favorite museums are open again! We recently visited the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and discovered a marvelous new textile art exhibit called Taking a Thread for a Walk. We love art museum exhibits devoted to textiles and weaving, and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s a fascinating look at gender, race and class in the arts – and an uplifting vision of how a simple thread could connect all of humanity.
