As NIU and the world around us deal with a global pandemic, artists continue to find ways to express themselves. In the College of Visual and Performing arts the learning and teaching hasn’t stopped, it’s simply evolved to meet the needs and limitations of the situation.

“During the pandemic, I’ve been staying productive and creative by finishing a few projects I had started prior to quarantine as well as starting a few works on paper. It has been important to me to find ways to continue making work without a woodshop or a ceramics studio. I’ve accepted that it’s not likely I’ll produce my magnum opus during this time but I’m doing what I can to stay productive and connected with other artists through social media.”
