Join Metrolina Library Association for our free, virtual event "Pandemic Perseverance: Art, Memory, and Mindfulness," 1-2:30 p.m., Thursday, April 22.
The event will feature three panelists speaking about perseverance during the pandemic, through three different lenses:
Leslie Strauss, Head of Family & Studio Programs at the Mint Museum, will discuss art as a source of solace, and the Mint's new exhibit Silent Streets: Art in the Time of Pandemic. The exhibit presents works of art by local, regional, national, and international artists who used art to survey and tackle the challenging times.
Stephanie Bennett, Collections Archivist at ZSR Special Collections & Archives at Wake Forest University, will discuss how SCA created a COVID-19 collection, and how it's actively documenting the experiences of Wake Forest alumni, students, staff, and faculty.
Richard Moniz, Director of Library Services at Horry-Georgetown Technical College, will discuss how the adoption of mindfulness can help us enhance our focus, improve our outlook, and cope with pandemic stress.
