"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Quarantine Prompt a Day <3 Through that Window

17 March 2020

Often we’re too busy to notice the view right in front of us. One of my students, when I asked about what they missed being away from home, softly described the view of the city at night from his bedroom window in what he called ‘the projects where I live.’ 

“At night,” he said, “the lights go on forever, and every light, I think, is a soul.” 

Make art about seeing the world through your window.

But now, I think we need art, and creativity, and beautiful distraction, more than ever. So 🙂 here we go again. Let’s start with the obvious. Take care of your beautiful selves ❤

Make art about feeling overwhelmed, about stopping to breathe in the midst of the onslaught, about caring for yourself in spite of the stress.
