COVID-19 Collecting Initiative
January 8, 2020
The Johnson County Museum recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic is a historic moment. We want to be sure that this history is represented in our collections and in future exhibitions and we need your help! Please fill out the informational prompts below and answer any or all the questions. Know that when the museum staff returns to work as normal, we will reach out to you for more information, and to follow up about any objects, photos, or documents you might suggest for our collection. Thank you for your participation in preserving the County’s history.
Looking back over the past 10 past months, how has your mindset changed toward the pandemic? Are you concerned about following health protocols and restrictions set by local, state and national leaders?
COVID has impacted how we gather with family and friends, especially during the holidays. What changes if any did you make in your traditions? Were new ones created? How did your decisions impact family?
It can be difficult to find the “silver lining” in the news and headlines these days. From your experience, what are some of the more redeeming effects of this pandemic?
For students: You have made it through the first semester! What do you appreciate most about your education?
For parents and others working from home: Do you plan to transition back to working away from the home, and if so, what influenced that decision?
For businesses: How did you adjust operations, staffing, etc. to keep your doors open? How did the CARES Act factor into your decision making?
Many individuals discovered new hobbies and activities. What trend or habit helped you cope with the last 10 months?
Who is the one person or persons who you have looked up to and depended on during this time?
If the Museum were to put together a time capsule to document this past year, what should we include (think about the other headlines of the year-political/economic crises, racial injustice, climate change, to name a few).
In addition to your story, do you have an object, photograph, or document to donate that defines the pandemic period in your life? Did you keep a journal or diary, or create a piece of pandemic-inspired artwork? Is there a new hobby or activity that you tried for the first time? Include these in your submission, and Johnson County Museum staff will reach out to you for more information.
Thank you for taking the time to submit your answers to the Johnson County Museum! Click the link below to have your form submitted to our curator of collections, Anne Jones.
