Its important to document not only whats happening around the world during the pandemic but what individual people within the community are going through during these hard times as well. The Museum is looking for pictures, drawings, journal entries, photos of the area anything that documents what it is like living through this scary time.
An amazing artist, Claire Lawerence started 2020 Doodles: Life During a Pandemic, which captures a glimpse into what is happening around the world during the pandemic.
