The Spurlock Museum’s galleries feature artists, artisans, and cultural makers from diverse areas of the world. Also on view is the commissioned installation “A World Through Windows” by Syrian-Armenian artist Kevork Mourad. In that new work, Mourad explores how the “pandemic has reduced our sense of space and our spheres of influence,” even while it has “increased our connectivity around the world”.
