Youth Art in the Time of COVID-19

Declaration is an annual survey of artwork contributed by Hamilton secondary school art students and presented at the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s Community Gallery. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, this exhibition exists as an online exhibition, collaboratively built between AGH Youth, Hamilton secondary school Art instructors, and most importantly, young Hamilton artists. As such, this work is reflective of this uniquely challenging moment in our history, and shows how students are using art to reflect their COVID-19 experience, and demonstrating the necessity and urgency of creative practice in these strangely challenging times.
