Gone Viral

University of the Pacific students are going viral with a COVID-19-related virtual art and essay exhibit. Students in Introduction to Museum Studies, taught by University Curator Lisa Cooperman, had planned to create a coronavirus-themed pop-up exhibition for a mid-semester project to be displayed in Pacific’s Reynolds Gallery at the end of March. But the university was forced to move to remote learning. 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 the global crisis. The focus of the exhibit evolved to reflect their experiences, fears, stress, coping mechanisms and hope for the future.
