SVA COVID Collection

By: bethkleber
The SVA Archives initiated the SVA COVID Collection in April 2020 to document the SVA community's response to the unprecendented circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. We solicited art from SVA students, faculty, staff, and alumni that filtered this experience through their creative output. The collection of more than 300 works includes paintings, drawings, photographs, posters, animation, and film.

The entire SVA COVID Collection is available publicly through Artstor, no login is necessary.

This project is ongoing and members of the the SVA community may continue to submit work here. You must be logged into your SVA account to access the form.

If you have any questions, please email the SVA Archives at
