Covid-19 has changed life for all of us, some more than others. People are experiencing a new kind of life while sheltering in place. This time has allowed many people to see their world from a new perspective. The world has never needed art so much as it needs it now. Artists can give the gift of beauty through their lens to share with others and offer a reprieve from the uncertainty and unknowns. Art can be healing in a time of chaos.

Share your artistic gifts and show the beauty you have found in your own backyard. Show what you love about the gorgeous and inspiring state of California.
