As the world locked down due to the pandemic, CCA shifted their focus from bringing nationally and internationally recognized artists to Fresno State to exploring the creative outlets of local and regional artists through the 2020 experience. PANDEMICAL explores the ways COVID-19 has impacted our lives, creativity, and artistry. Taking advantage of the online medium, it will showcase spoken word, poetry, theatre, music, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video and animation.
