“In the pink” is a phrase that is defined as “being in good health and spirits.” In these difficult times, we understand the importance of being “in the pink” to endure the uncharted territory we have found ourselves in.
As we all know, lives around the world have been uprooted by the effects of the novel coronavirus. We are living in unprecedented circumstances. Understandably, fixations on sickness and vulnerability dominate public and private conversation. Because of this, it is crucial to focus on wellbeing and resilience to find hope and motivation. And what better tool for that than art?
For some, art can be soothing, inspiring, even baffling. For others, it can be meditative, generative, and give purpose to one’s efforts and abilities. Art is a mutual respite for both viewer and artist, and we could all use some healing. At Bryant Street Gallery, we compiled this collection of works that embody our understanding of “in the pink”. There is an inherent vitality and optimism to the color pink. Vitality and optimism are what we want to share with you right now. We sincerely wish you all find a way to be happy, healthy, safe, and certainly “in the pink” now and always.
