Lana Garland: “A Balm for the Soul”

Part of our “Art and Artists are Essential” collection and invitation.

Lana Garland is a writer, filmmaker, photographer, instructor who shared that during this time, “I needed to make sense of all that is going on, so I decided to both write and shoot.” She has shared the resulting works with us as both photographs and an essay she penned, which you can read here: “Harriet in the Time of Coronavirus.”

She also offered the following advice about art’s role during this time: “Keep making art. It’s a useful way of making sense out of the nonsensical. It is a balm for the soul.”
