Today Kentucky suffered the most virus-related deaths reported in the commonwealth in a single day. As the day drew to a close, green lights illuminated homes, businesses, and government buildings everywhere as a way to remember the dead and affirm hope for the future. Today Governor Andy Beshear announced more plans for businesses to reopen. Museums, outdoor attractions, aquariums, libraries, and distilleries can reopen on June 8. Today it rained in Lexington again. After two days of ceaseless torrents, it felt as if we would never know sunshine again. Some city roads and highways had to be shut down. Tonight college professors toasted their graduates over Google Meet. Everyone wished they could have been in the same space, even though it’s much harder to hide tears in person. More rain is expected tomorrow. #TogetherKY #TeamKentucky #HealthyAtHome

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.
