A brand new COVID-19-related art installation is popping up around Toronto
We may all be forced apart these days, but there’s one thing that is keeping us together. Well, metaphorically, at least. And that’s art. And the people behind the Bentway have just created an innovative new project that is sure to bring a smile to your face. It’s called “It’s All Right Now.” And it’s a collection of art displays scattered throughout the city that reflect the experience we’re all going through right now.
The installations began popping up on May 25th and the project is said to continue until the end of June. It’ll feature work from over 20 local artists and their designs will appear on digital billboards, city landmarks, and on the official “It’s All Right Now” webpage.

The goal of the project is to unite the people of Toronto through the shared experience that we’re all going through right now. So each piece reflects what’s it’s been like to be isolated in the big city.
Plus, if you’re an artist you can get involved! They’re accepting art submissions for a collection that’ll come out next year that’s all about living through COVID-19. So if you wanna express yourself, you can either post about it on social media with the hashtag #ItsAllRightNow or shoot an email to ItsAllRightNow@thebentway.com
So next time you’re walking around the streets of Toronto, be sure to keep an eye out for these cool art pieces. They’ll definitely remind you that you’re not alone.
