What is "Eating in the Time of COVID-19"?

In response to the COVID-19 crisis and as part of the Richmond Has Heart campaign, Richmond’s Public Art Program commissioned a series of artist-initiated projects that explore new and meaningful ways to find community connection while maintaining physical distancing protocols. 

"Eating in the Time of COVID-19" is one of four art projects by Richmond-based artists, which aims to promote mental health, well-being, and creativity while fostering community connections during these challenging times.
