Creativity vs. COVID: Ending the Pandemic for Good
March 24 - May 9Free
“Creativity vs. COVID: Free the Vaccine for Good” is a virtual exhibition that provides creative ways for anyone to advocate for global health equity and affordable vaccines for the benefit for all.
This innovative, virtual exhibition shares the compelling creative work of the Free the Vaccine for COVID-19 campaign – from poster designs to viral parody music videos. In doing so, it introduces audiences to key issues that limit access to medicine and provides robust methods that anyone can use to advocate for change from anywhere, especially at this time of social distancing.
“Creativity vs. COVID” is organized by Laura Holzman, an associate professor of art history and museum studies at IUPUI and a public scholar of curatorial practices and visual art. Free the Vaccine for COVID-19 is led by the Center for Artistic Activism and Universities Allied for Essential Medicines and is part of the People’s Vaccine Alliance, a coalition of international organizations.
Herron’s exhibitions in Eskenazi Hall, 735 W. New York St., are free of charge and open to the public. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
Virtual 360-degree tours will be made available in addition to in-person experiences.
