Twice in a Lifetime: experience with an exhibition on the Pandemic of 1918 & how it resonates in 2020

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In 2018 Micaela Sullivan-Fowler installed an exhibition called "Staggering Losses: WW1 and the Influenza Pandemic of 1918." Little did she know that the exhibition would be shuttered by another Pandemic, the one we are experiencing in 2020. She will give a short background on the exhibition itself, how the "Spanish Flu" affected our local populations and how the exhibition resonated for those who visited. Micaela will also touch on the similarities and differences between the two Pandemics. She takes no responsibility for COVID-19, though her husband often refers to the current public health dynamic as the PandeMIC.
