Stories of Wisdom from Bodies in Separation (SWaBS):
Archiving the Coronavirus Pandemic Through the Lens of Humanities.
We received significant local media coverage.
The video series “Creating Apart” was featured in the local community blog “Perfect Duluth Day” (https://www.perfectduluthday) over seven consecutive weeks, beginning in September, 2020.
Additional coverage of the NEH grant and its exhibition appeared on local media. On radio, this included Mix108 (https://mix108.com/tweed-museum-of-art-opening-pandemic-inspired-exhibition/).
On TV, this included Fox21 and WDIO (e.g. see https://www.fox21online.com/2020/09/08/a-covid-19-inspired-exhibit-headed-for-umds-tweed-museum-of-art/).
Press releases were issued by UMPR (the central public relations office at UMD), by the Library, and by the Tweed Museum. The exhibit was featured in the Tweed Newsletter. (See Appendices for screenshot samples.) The Tweed Instagram and the UMD Archives Instagram feeds were essential promotional tools.
