Our exhibit engages in the issues and disparity of experiences along generational lines, with particular emphasis on children, elders, and schools and communities. While news stories at the outset of the pandemic often highlighted tropes of endangered and isolated seniors and elders, while pointing to children or young adults as unwarry, or even dismissive Coronavirus spreaders, this disease has affected people of all ages and we set out to preserve this full range of impacts in our collection.
