Together let’s preserve the history of 2020 – and start to make sense of it

From face masks to S. Elm Street storefront murals demanding racial justice, 2020 has seen amazing expressions across the Gate City. Pieces of Now displays some of these objects, including nearly 20 pieces of street art created as part of the summer’s Black Lives Matter protests. The exhibition also invites the community to share experiences, stories and objects related to the protests, pandemic and economic crisis.
