"The pandemic gave us the opportunity to lean into virtual programming in a way that would have been very difficult to make space for during our normal operations. We won't be keeping all the models we tried, but there were programs that were wildly successful in digital space although they had been only modestly so in person, and audiences we could reach digitally that couldn't ever have been with us in person. For a museum in a huge city with legendary traffic issues in a massive state, turns out digital gives us some really unique opportunities."
"Going on 87 and twice jabbed, I read, write and garden, a spendthrift each day. Lucky my class all present and sentient. Go figure."
"My work has changed for the better with Zoom and teams meetings! I love the flexibility of being able to work from home while also chatting with colleagues. Exhibition design meetings go much smoother when you can share you screen. You can even have back-to-back meetings without having to run to a different location in between. Plus, no pants!"
"Without sounding cliche, 2020 taught me to listen more and talk less. In this way all aspects (including my work as a conservator) changed for the better."
"Believe it or not, Zoom. While too much Zoom is exhausting, I do really appreciate being able to see the faces of my friends and colleagues. I think it makes for more effective meetings and who hasn't had their day made by a Zoom happy hour with friends from across the country?"
