During the pandemic, masks have become a major part of our lives. We wear them to protect ourselves and to protect those around us. Nearly a year into this pandemic, we see masks everywhere. We had hoped that the pandemic would be under control enough to allow the public back in the museum, but with the Norwich campus still closed to visitors, the museum remains closed to the public. For now, we are closed even to students, faculty, and staff during the continued campus quarantine of students. However, as we had hoped to have the public back, Samantha (Sam) R. Talbot-Kelly, a seamstress at the uniform store, adjunct faculty with the School of Architecture and Art, and an artist, created an art installation within the museum. “Pandemia’s Black Feather,” is an impressive and fascinating artistic expression of one of the most visible representations of the COVID-19 pandemic: the mask.

Katherine Taylor-McBroom, the Sullivan Museum and History Center’s Curator of Exhibits and Collections, conducted an interview with Sam about “Pandemia’s Black Feather.” We will be posting the interview on Facebook on February 24, 2021 at noon. This will be the first of four virtual Lunch and Learn presentations during the spring semester. Since the museum is under continued closure, we plan to bring our patrons some exciting programs this spring, so please stay tuned for further announcements.
