AMULETS

It was an idea created by Adrian Arias to be carried out as a workshop in the Albany Bulb, in April 2020, but the covid19 pandemic started and instead of canceling it, we did it online.

The willpower and desire to create a protective object led us to create an Amulet during our confinement. Here is a collection of 11 Amulets created by artists from the community. Each one has a brief explanation or title.

Each amulet was created following a short instruction sheet that was sent online by Adrian to the participants. The photos were taken keeping the social distance and the mask.

Thank you Susan Moffat for the support
