“Model Citizens” are unique yet at the same time, in structure, much the same. As unique individuals, all respect their differences and care for the common good. “Model Citizens” have a wi-fi antenna, a symbol for a new age of modernity. We’re apart but not disconnected. Encircling each other through technology in a way unprecedented in history, we’re together.
A collective effort is needed to starve covid-19 of hosts. We need to be model citizens. We need to protect each other. We need to practice social distancing.
Because of the pandemic, as is the case with everyone else who was slated to have an exhibition opening, the exhibition “The Shape of Things” with artist Diane Di Bernardino Sanborn at Water Street Studios, Batavia Illinois (suburb of Chicago) has been cancelled.
It was going to feature 10 new works on cut-out metal and acrylic. What’s most important is the health, safety and welfare of everyone. I wish all of you out there to stay healthy throughout this pandemic crisis. I’m grateful to the Ohio Arts Council for a grant that made a portion of the creation of the work possible. The Ohio Arts Council has been funding Artists with Disabilities (ADAP) for more than 22 years.
