“We are drawn to Carrie Mae Weems’ work because she illustrates how public art can help communities process the complex social challenges posed by COVID-19. … We believe art can call attention to the interconnectedness of our collective histories and inspire us to work together towards a healthier and more equitable future.” – Alyah Baker, Lee Edwards and Courtney Liu, MFA candidates at Duke
