Among things that happened in Lexington, KY this weekend were: *A Front Yard Art Show. The organizers cautioned on FB: “This is a socially distanced event so please do not get out of your car and view art from your vehicle only please.” The double “please” appeared meant to alleviate the realization that front-yard art, too, now has to be enjoyed from 6 feet away. *Numerous acts of kindness, involving potted plants, grocery pick-ups, and online relief fundraisers. Lexington’s own Cricket Press released a new print to benefit the Blue Grass Community Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund (check it out!). *At least one Zoom wedding ceremony. It wasn’t what the folks getting married had planned to do, but they know improvisation is part of what life is about. They feel happily married now.

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.
