Textile designer Shabd-Simon Alexander, an alum of the NYU Tisch Department of Photography & Imaging, organized members of the art world to donate their medical-grade masks and gloves to doctors and nurses on the frontlines of the battle against the noval coronavirus. Artists often use these types of materials when working with various materials to protect themselves from fumes and particles. She even created a Google Form for people to list their needs.
