The author Richard Wright said, “An artist deals with aspects of reality different from those which a scientist sees.” Right now, the reality that scientists — and most people — see is a pandemic. And right now, artists can’t help but see that same reality.
Art shows — the main way many artists show their work — halted. Art galleries closed. It’s not just about seeing the art, which is important, but about connecting with the artist.

You know what you’re going to get with Northern Trust. The US financial services group, which includes among other things an asset manager and custody bank, has built a reputation over the past 130 years, including 50 years in London, as an ultra-solid, ultra-reliable entity. While the bulging custody banks seem locked in a race for scale that has seen some of them accumulate in recent years upwards of an eye-watering $30 trillion of assets, Northern Trust has enjoyed more modest growth.
For many, the infinite ways that these three elements intersect — from where we live to the items we purchase to how we interact with one another — either goes largely unnoticed or, if one does stop to consider the sum effects of such dynamics, seems almost too complex to take on. But these are exactly the sort of questions that Chicago artist Amanda Williams has been asking — and answering — her entire life.
