International Art Exhibition Moves Online During Covid Crisis

 

Endangered Exhibit, Usually Held in Miami During Art Basel Week, Will Offer Virtual Viewing of Award-Winning Entries and More!

 

ENDANGERED Online! The annual ENDANGERED: Art4Apes Fine Art and Photography Exhibition, which focuses attention on the plight of endangered and threatened species/habitats, will offer a virtual experience for the 2020 event. The virtual exhibit will be available from November 1 through December 31, 2020. To view the winners and exhibit, visit https://www.art4apes.com/endangered-online

 

.

“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we moved the exhibition online to protect our artists, buyers, visitors and volunteers,” stated Art4Apes founder and director Lindsey Matheson, “While we will miss the thrill of showcasing these incredible works of art during Miami Art Week, we feel the benefit of being online this year will allow even more people to view the pieces and support the program.”

 

The online exhibition features the 2020 entries to the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest. More than 400 works by almost 200 new and established artists from around the world will be available for viewing. There is no charge to view the four virtual galleries. Artists are generously donating at least 30% of the selling price of their work to help the Center for Great Apes, a Florida-based sanctuary for rescued orangutans and chimpanzees in need of lifetime care.
