CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — An art exhibit aims to capture “Art in the Time of Quarantine.”

Chambanamoms, Krannert Art Museum, K​OOP Adventure Play, Museum of the Grand Prairie, and the City of Urbana Arts and Culture Program are all sponsors of the exhibition, which is open to kids through Monday night.

Katie Snyder with the Museum of the Grand Prairie says the collection will capture a moment in history.

“We thought it would be really interesting to see the kinds of things students are thinking about and creating through the art they’re doing at home during this time of quarantine,” Snyder says.

Julia Kelly with Krannert Art Museum says many of the submissions have similar underlying themes.
