Art and Epidemics is a virtual tour of the Cleveland Museum of Art that makes interesting connections between artworks and epidemics that have occurred in the course of history, including the current COVID-19 pandemic. These associations become a basis for exploring the impact that epidemics have had on art through the ages. You may never look at these artworks the same way again!
