The project was run by the Public Art Fund as it teamed up with LinkNYC to bring the pieces to bus shelters and boards across the boroughs.

A total of 50 artists were chosen to reflect on COVID-19 and life as we now know it. An added topic was the Black Lives Matter movement. Artists were also asked to reflect on the world in relation to systemic racism.

The work throughout the community is visible at over 500 locations.
