Mariano Del Rosario is one of seven artists exhibiting work in A Moment Materialized: An Exhibition in Response to COVID-19[4], which illuminates how creative practices have been affected by this pandemic as well as capturing through materials what stats and quantitative data alone cannot. Organized by Carli Beseau, of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the show aims to “capture a feeling, a sensation, a response to this unprecedented time through the eyes of working artists in Brooklyn, NY.”
