The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many facets of our lives. In particular, it’s taken a massive toll on the arts world, shutting down art galleries, museums, and exhibits. How have artists in New Haven been personally impacted? Have events that happened during the past year inspired their work in any way? To find out more, I sat down with Allana Clarke, who is currently a fellow at the NXTHVN arts incubator working on photography, performance videography, and sculpting, among other media. We talked about her role at NXTHVN, the meaning of her art, and the effect the pandemic has had on her.
