Self-guided artworks can prove to be a worthwhile endeavor during the COVID-19 pandemic as it engages individuals outdoors and allows them to learn something new. The Block Museum of Art’s Campus Art Walk is one such recreational experience for the public in Illinois' Northwestern and Evanston communities.
The self-guided art walk boasts a total of 16 sculptures. The space is accessible and individuals can opt-in for an audio guide, who provides context and helps viewers engage, either online or by calling a phone number. Lindsay Bosch, the Block Museum's senior manager of marketing and communications shares that "one of the fun things about the Campus Art Walk is that you don’t have to have a certain amount of time. If you’re visiting the campus, if you’re just passing through, you can see a couple, or you can go off and do them all.”
