Many things stopped abruptly as the coronavirus pandemic took hold earlier this year. But visual artists kept creating, in response to COVID-19, the Black Lives Matter demonstrations and personal concerns. 
Racine Art Museum's "From the Heart: RAM Virtual Community Art Show," online through Oct. 4, shows 103 artworks created during the turbulent first half of 2020, submitted by artists from around Wisconsin, the United States and other countries. 
Viewers can look at the work at ramart.org and vote for their favorite. The three artists voted as audience favorites will receive gift certificates for free studio art classes.
