Some things—like doctors’ visits, physical therapy, exercise classes, even meetings—can work better in their pandemic versions. This is definitely the case with Play/Ground, the multi-artist installation project that was sited in a Medina schoolhouse for its 2018 and 2019 iterations. This year, Play/Ground was everywhere: downtown, Canalside, Hotel Henry, Artpark, Larkinville, and a few other locations. This made it much easier to see the art that was closest and there was plenty of time (ten days) to see it all. As has been the case every year, the installations were ambitious and often brilliant. And just like the other two years, kudos must be amply awarded to this year’s organizers: Emily Tucker of Resource:Art and Emily Reynolds, of Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art.
