These Strange and Unusual Times: Sharing Our Experiences Through Objects
The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum invites you to participate in a virtual Pop-Up Museum!
Submissions accepted May 7 – May 12, 2020
Email a photograph of an object, along with a 100-word description to email@example.com
Ten years from now, what object do you imagine you will associate with this strange and extraordinary time? Something that reminds you of a person, event, or activity? Perhaps something that by its feel, scent, or even taste will evoke memories of COVID-19-dominated spring 2020?
The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum invites you to contribute a photograph of your chosen object to our first-ever virtual Pop-Up Museum. A Pop-Up Museum is a temporary exhibit created by people who come together to display special objects and share stories about them. Usually, a Pop-Up Museum lasts a few hours in a physical space and then it is gone! This one will be different because, well, these are unusual times!
Once you have selected an item, send us a photograph of it, along with a short explanation of why this object has meaning to you. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 12, 2020.
The museum will compile contributions and create a Pop-Up exhibition on the Arctic Museum’s website. We will send you a link to the exhibit once it is posted so you can participate in an opening event and share the exhibit with family and friends.
• It will be hard, but select one item only!
• Email us a photograph of the item (jpeg format, please).
• Include a short explanation in the body of your email, no more than 100 words.
• Provide your name and that of your community. Also, tell us whether we can associate your name with your object, or whether you wish to remain anonymous.
