Tri-State community members are being asked to share their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic for a new display at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science.

Museum officials say the COVID-19 pandemic has been a unique disaster in the way that it has impacted nearly everyone while at the same time isolating us from one another.

The project is being created as a response to that fact in an attempt to bring together the separate experiences from around the community into one collective exhibition that will aim to show the solidarity and unity of the community despite physical separation.

"The project will embrace a theme of hope, bringing the community together to celebrate all that we have overcome separately," the museum said in a statement.

Community members of all ages are invited to submit their own perspectives of the pandemic, both positive and negative, as works of art or as written submissions on individual project cards that will be incorporated into the final installation.

Project cards can be picked up for free from the Evansville Museum. Groups interested in picking up a large number of cards (such as for a classroom or scout troop) are welcome to do so and are asked to call ahead at 812-425-2406 to reserve their cards.

Ideas for submissions include experiences, events, emotions, hopes for the future, etc.

The exhibit, titled "Window to the Tri-State: The Community’s COVID-19 Experience" will be on display in the Eykamp Pavilion at the museum from June 4 to Oct 3, 2021.

For more information on how to participate, you can visit emuseum.org or call 812-425-2406.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
