ART BUSTS OUT [ while Burke stays in ]

In Spring 2020, the Visual & Performing Arts faculty at Burke invited the community to share work created in quarantine.

Art transcends time and space, and we strive to stay connected through acts of creation.

" ... My apartment unit is small, warm, and cozy like a hearth. Our walls are the color of vanilla. Not like snow in the dead of winter. I have my own study space too. It’s bigger than an office cubicle,  and I have my own desk of rectangular gray wood to keep me company. There is a window in my space. My window contains vanilla blinds and a clear glass slide to let in the sweet, fresh air. When I’m studying, I enjoy the smell of nature filling my study space hungrily, consuming my space with cool air." -- Anina H. '24
