In these Uncertain Times FAQs

Wow! We’ve received over 130 responses to the community survey since it went out last week. We are incredibly thankful that folks are eager to share their time, stories, and creativity.

With the call out posted and one Q&A Zoom meet up under our belt, we wanted to follow up with a FAQ about the exhibition and the ways in which folks, like you, can participate.
