General note

So much has changed in 2020. Physical distancing has changed the way we teach, learn, conduct business, debate, communicate, and interact among our friends, families and colleagues. What remains the same is that we are still a campus community. How our community has adjusted and adapted to these times is something people will look back on for many years. Our stories and experiences are meaningful and should be heard now and preserved for the future.

What is your story?

Archives and Special Collections wants to collect and preserve your stories from 2020. We invite ArtCenter students, faculty, staff, and alumni to contribute their experiences from this year. Your personal stories will be permanently added to the Archives and help document this period in the College’s history.

What has your experience been like studying, teaching, and working from home during the pandemic? What challenges have you faced? What positive experiences have you had this year? Have you participated in protests for Black Lives Matter or are involved in racial and social justice movements? How have you maintained working relationships with colleagues and the ArtCenter community? How have the events from this year influenced your work?
