Connection to Carleton
Our exhibit engages with a number of distinct themes, and this thematic range reflects the evolution of our inquiry and points of exploration. However, the common thread that ties our exhibit together is public communication. We have centered local institutions in this exhibit, and we hope through exploring our collection you will feel encouraged to consider how COVID-19 has changed the way communities and institutions interact, and howthis interaction, in turn, has changed how we experience the pandemic. Moreover, we hope you will come to consider how these shifts in both method and content of communication are made manifest in the public spaces we all inhabit, in diverse and dynamic ways. Our definition of institution is quite broad, as is our definition of community, and we encourage you to ponder what differentiates one from the other.
