Back in 2014 we began asking artists, curators, literati, musicians, disability community members, and other local lights to dive into our online gallery and create a weekly exhibition. Back in those days, our online gallery was hosted on Tumblr (!!), and organizing an exhibition was an arduous task.
In 2021, with more than 6,000 artworks in the NIAD collection, putting together an online exhibition is still quite a labor of love.
We started the year with Eric Shiner’s “Road to Nowhere” and ended it looking back with “A Year Through the Windows,” with almost fifty magnificent exhibitions in between.
With this last online exhibition of the year (link in bio), we’re spotlighting a handful of exhibitions, each from different points on the rollercoaster that was the 2021 mood.
Much gratitude to each and every one of our 2021 online exhibition organizers for offering us a glimpse of the NIAD collection through their eyes (and so, so many open browser windows).
