“Art encounters, even in a digital space, offer opportunities to help us make sense of what is happening around us, broadening our understanding of who we are in relation to one another. We believe that museums have a unique role to play right now. While this moment brings unprecedented challenges, it also offers new ways to connect and make meaning together. ”
