Folkestone, Kent, has the largest urban outdoor exhibition of contemporary art in the United Kingdom. This permanent exhibition shows the work of forty-eight contemporary artists whose work is displayed throughout the town, with many pieces having been created for the specific site in which they are located. This article provides an introduction to and personal reflective commentary on some artworks within the collection at Folkestone and how they supported the author’s thinking during the COVID-19 pandemic. Eight artworks are discussed with a commentary on how they linked to the themes within research into experiences of part-time undergraduates at a distance learning university.
