Once upon a time, today would have been the first day of spring break for most of Lexington’s kids. But since this is the beginning of week three of our new socially-distant way of living and learning, today didn’t feel that different from last week. Except that the city closed most playgrounds and public restrooms, and barricaded the parking lots at the city’s parks to prevent large groups of people from gathering (the skate parks already closed on Friday). So today kids practiced their imagination and kindness at home. There was music on some porches, too. There is always music.

Lexington in the Time of COVID-19 is an artwork about people practicing social distancing at a time of a deadly virus. And also offering kindness.
