GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — People may not be able to physically gather together while the state's stay-at-home mandate is in effect but that hasn't stopped them for forming a sense of community.

Many neighborhoods have organized window art events around social media hashtags like #aworldofhearts and #rainbowtrail to help keep the kids at home busy and as a way to show communal support for others.

We asked our viewers to submit some of their artwork on Facebook. Here are a few of the responses we received.

Tracy Gervais is sending out some love from Gaines Township with this artwork.

Mandi McMeeken's windows in Greenville also has a rainbow theme...with some wildlife tossed in.

JP Burrell Pantelin's front door in Wyoming promotes peace...

...while Brenda Jones's patio door has an image of faith.

It's always a sunny day at the home of Jessica Sory...

... but nighttime is the right time to get the full effect at the home of Cassie Shattuck.

All of the windows are a collection of messages representing community, hope, faith and Amanda Ann's window in Rockford.

Together, they state a fact aptly placed in the window of Jess Ann's home: We're in this together.
