How creative thinking helped Seattle flatten the curve

The pandemic hit Washington State’s King County early and hard. On January 20, the first coronavirus case in the United States (recognized at that time) was confirmed here. On May 10, the county hit a grim milestone of 500 COVID-19 deaths. As of May 13, that number has ticked up to 511. © NGP, Content may not reflect National Geographic's current map policy.

"Fable" at David Lusk Gallery

The folksy and fantastical group exhibition Fable at David Lusk Gallery in Nashville gathers a roster of artists offering varied interpretations of the lessons found in a thrift store copy of Aesop’s Famous Tales. While we think of them as children’s stories in the twenty-first century, these ancient tales were originally aimed at adults. Aesop’s stories are packed with animal characters, and Fable is similarly populated by a magical menagerie of cats, birds, lions, and snakes. Terry Lynn’s Brer responds to Aesop’s lessons with a reference to the more modern—and strikingly more Southern—trickster tales attributed to Uncle Remus. Lynn’s large painted collage pictures a man in a rabbit head mask surrounded by a bunch of bunnies. In Leslie Holt’s paintings Slow and Steady and Fast and Foolish, “The Tortoise and the Hare” is illustrated in a diptych.
