What Is Good Art? 2020 Finalists

The Kenan Institute for Ethics invited students from across Duke to submit artwork for What Is Good Art? The theme for the show is “Ethics in the Age of Coronavirus” These works explore how we should live during COVID-19, focusing on the role that art plays in our lives and its impact on how we see the world during a global pandemic. When social distancing, self-isolation, and stay-at-home directives are in place, what meaning does community hold and what new forms does it take? Congratulations to the finalists with their submissions on exhibition below.  Work submitted by graduate/professional students was judged separately from undergraduate submissions, with a panel of experts in ethics and aesthetics awarding First ($500), Second ($300), and Third ($100) Prizes in each category.
