The artists offered works of art that they created during the COVID-19 pandemic. The exhibition featured the paintings and other objects of more than 20 artists, and was open to the public from May 14 to July 9.
Another exhibition was made up from the RSM Collection of Robert Orton, and included over 200 books donated from his personal library. From April 1 to May 8, people could go to the Melissa and Max Elliott Reading Room and peruse the collection.
