Drive-By-Art, an outdoor public art exhibition, was held over the weekend of May 9.

All across the South Fork, from Montauk to Hampton Bays, the exhibit provided a way for the community to experience art from the safety of their own vehicles, all while social distancing.

Over 50 painters, sculptors, photographers, performance artists, film and video makers, poets, and musicians were involved in displaying a variety of art on their properties, near roads, or on highways.

The Drive-By-Art weekend was organized by artist and theorist Warren Neidich. The works each related to this current moment of social distancing during COVID-19.

Participants included Suzanne Anker, Brianna Ashe, Elena Bajo, Monica Banks, Dianne Blell, Joe Brondo, Philippe Cheng, Kelly Darr, Jeremy Dennis, Eric Dever, Sally Egbert, Esly E. Escobar, Eva Faye, Eric Fischl, Saskia Friedrich, Robin Gianis, Frank Gillette, Janet Goleas, Carly Haffner, Hiroyuki Hamada, Barry Holden, Alice Hope, Soren Hope, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Bryan Hunt, Joan Jonas, Eileen O’Kane Kornreich, Laurie Lambrecht, Steve Miller, Jill Musnicki, Cassi Namoda, Stephen Neidich, Joel Perlman, Toni Ross and Sara Salaway, Matthew Satz, Bastienne Schmidt, Christine Sciulli, Barry Schwabsky, Bruce M. Sherman, Keith Sonnier, Sabina Streeter, Carol Szymanski, Evan Thomas, Susan Vecsey, Ryan Wallace, Lucy Winton, Nina Yankowitz, Darius Yektai, and Almond Zigmund.
