We are Collecting Stories
Museum Seeking Submissions to Collection
Wenatchee, Wash. – (April 30, 2020) For over 80 years, our community has trusted the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center to collect and share the stories of remarkable people and moments in our history; and the biggest story right now is the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on our lives and our region’s response. This is why the Wenatchee Valley Museum is asking community members to share their stories: Your personal reflections on living through this pandemic. How are you spending your days in this strange new “normal.” What have you learned about yourself, your friends, or your family, that is giving you strength amidst chaos.
The community is asked to share their personal reflections by emailing the Museum at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mailing to Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center, Attn: Collections, 127 S Mission St, Wenatchee, WA 98801. We invite written reflections and photographs that document images of this extraordinary time in our valley. All submitted materials must include the author’s full name, location (city, town, or reservation), email address, and the date. The Museum will add a selection of the stories and reflections to our collections, where future generations will go to understand what this unprecedented moment in history was really like.
During the closure the Museum has launched Virtual Tours and Online Activities on its YouTube channel. The public can stay updated on when the Museum will be able to reopen by visiting wenatcheevalleymuseum.org, subscribing to the Museum email newsletter, and by following the Museum on social media: on Facebook @wenatcheemuseum and on Instagram @wvmuseum.
Please visit the Museum website wenatcheevalleymuseum.org for the latest information or email email@example.com with specific questions.
