They wrote and shot videos about the project and the Helpful Art in Covid exhibition by press agencies - the Spanish EFE, the French AFP, the Czech ČTK and others. Articles have been published in the media of many countries.
"The Helpful Art in Covid project and exhibition was created thanks to a face mask we created on the Lennon Wall in Prague in the spring of 2020, during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. We all had to put on a face mask. So we symbolically placed it on the portrait of John Lennon on the wall, which has been a symbol of freedom and love for our country for decades. Photographs of Lennon's wall with a veil have traveled the world and been published in hundreds of media. ”Says artist Pavel Šťastný, author of the project and exhibition.
The Washington Post used a photograph with a face mask from the Lennon Wall in Prague to invite to the online 40th annual concert in honor of John Lennon, which took place on October 9, 2020 in New York for his undead 80th birthday. More than a hundred other media outlets in the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Lebanon, Trinidad and Tobago, Bulgaria and other countries have taken the photo from the US press agency AP - Associated Press.
The project was joined by the world organization UNESCO, which provided its projects "The Next Normal", "DontGoViral" and "ResiliArt. The exhibition includes projects of Czech Television and the Seznam.cz portal. The project was created in cooperation with the Motol University Hospital, under the auspices of Jan Horník, Vice-President of the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic.
