Building an Exhibition in a Pandemic
Friday, January 29
Free for CAM members; $10 for nonmembers
CAM's new monthly Virtual Lecture Series kicks off in January with "Building an Exhibition in a Pandemic" featuring CAM Librarian/Archivist Trenton Carls and CAM Curatorial Assistant Leon Doucette.
Virtual attendees will be given a tour of the Museum’s newest exhibition, CAM (Re)Connects, live on Zoom. The exhibition features many of the objects and works of art spotlighted in the Museum's virtual outreach shared over the first six months of the pandemic under the banner CAM Connects. Leon and Trenton will discuss the massive pivot that the Cape Ann Museum, along with our fellow cultural institutions, took in 2020 and how calamity combined with creativity to give birth to this exhibition.

About CAM Connects and (Re)Connects
In April 2020, in response to the pandemic, the Museum launched its first digital newsletter under the banner CAM Connects. These rich virtual communications, which continue in 2021, gave CAM members and the public a new way to access the Museum's collections during the shutdown. Subjects covered in CAM Connects during this time ranged from Fiesta and the fishing industry to writers of Cape Ann and printmaking. These focus areas are reflected through installations in the CAM Re(Connects) exhibition.
