Pandemic Art , 2020-04

Identifier: togetherApart-611

Scope and Contents

Recall that at the onsent of the pandemic in early 2020 there was a run on paper towels and tissue paper, among other things, resuting in shortages. The residual cardboad tubes gave me a novel pandemic art idea - use acrylic paint to paint bright, colorful designs and scenes on the cylinders. Thus was born one of my pandemic art projects. [Three painted art tubes from toilet paper roll, tissue paper roll, and paper towel roll. Includes information on how to purchase art - please contact Library for more information if desired.]
