On March 23, Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued an executive order calling for Oregonians to stay home, closing specific retail businesses, and requiring social distancing in most cases, immediately and until further notice. Social gatherings with people from outside of your household are not allowed until further notice.

May is Mental Health Month—a time to raise awareness and reflect on the importance of mental health especially during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, the Duck Nest is having a virtual art show with the theme: Art in Isolation. How is your mental well-being affected during a time of isolation and social distancing? What are ways that you cope with distance? How do you form community while studying remotely? How does art influence your life during the pandemic?
Share with us a piece of art that you want on display at the Mental Wellbeing Art Show 2020 on a virtual platform relating to this theme. You can submit art of any media including painting, photography, sculpture, music, spoken word, acting, dancing, and anything else that can be recorded or photographed for a virtual art show experience.
There will be prizes for the top three submissions. All levels and multiple submissions are welcome!
