Collecting In Crisis

The Covid-19 pandemic and the civil rights crisis here in America have taken the world by storm. As our lives shift, the Gaston County Museum of Art and History would like to document these moments in history, and we are asking the people of Gaston County to help us by sharing their experiences.

Please feel free to submit photos, videos, audio, journal entries, and more detailing your feelings and experiences during this time. We thank you!
