The Q.U.A.R.A.N.T.I.N.E. Project

South Florida artist Chen H. Bitton has curated an online exhibition, auction and fundraiser that runs through June 18. The project brings together artists from different backgrounds and funnels the COVID-19 experience through their creative prism. The exhibition is merging with Artist Relief Tree, with much of the proceeds going to that foundation’s fund for artists affected by cancellations due to the coronavirus.
