Gone Viral online Exhibition by students in Spring 2020, ARTH 193, Introduction to Museum Studies.
On February 25th museum studies students decided to create a coronavirus themed pop-up exhibition for their mid-semester project. Within two weeks our world was upended with campus closure and a move to distance learning for the end of the term. What began as an in-person collaboration designed for a campus gallery about a timely topic shifted, as students moved from bystanders to active participants in this global crisis. The focus of the show evolved to reflect their experiences, fears, stress, coping mechanisms, and hope for the future.
