I think we’re realizing how important art is to our daily lives,” says Brian Sago.

     COVID-19 has greatly affected the arts, especially museums. Many museums have had to close down for prolonged periods of time in order to be safe during the pandemic. Museums across the country have had to adapt and change the way they function to continue to share the arts with the community, 

     An exhibit at The Walker, Faye Driscoll: Come On In, took place online so viewers could experience the arts from their home. The exhibit included video and audio of the installation. This exhibit was initially planned to be presented Feb. 17 to Jun. 14, 2020. However, since The Walker closed in Mar. due to COVID-19, it had to be canceled. Many were still able to enjoy this exhibit in a safe way after it was changed to become an online experience.

     Another exhibit by Josh Fox, The Truth Has Changed, explores the world we live in today. It follows the history of the U.S. through Sept. 11 2001, the spreading of misinformation and propaganda, to Trump and the 2020 elections. The New York Times called it ìOne of the most adventurous impresarios of the New York avant-garde. This special edition, pre-recorded performance is available, Jan. 29 through Feb. 1.   The Online Nature allows the performance to reach many more people been online.

My name is Sofia and I am a senior this year! I have been a writer and editor for Spectrum since my freshman year, and I previously served on the Spectrum Staff Team as Copy Editor and Student Spotlight page editor. Previously I have edited the In-Depth, Sci-Tech, Perspectives, and News pages. My favorite thing about Spectrum is the collaboration across all different grade levels. I love having the opportunity to work with people I would otherwise not know. Outside of school, I am a year-round student at Minnesota Dance Theatre and a member of MDT's Second Company. I love to travel, read, and spend time with friends and family.

Hey there, I'm Betsy. My pronouns are she/her. My toxic personality trait is that I like my iced coffee more than I like my friends. Sorry not sorry. I'm a Senior, and I am currently a Contributing Writer. My freshman year I started as a staff photographer and I wrote a couple articles. I loved seeing the end result of the final paper and wanted to contribute more to the process. Sophomore year I edited Features and was the Photography Editor. Last year I was the Creative Director and Photography Editor. I also edited Food Features for a short amount of time. Last semester I was the Creative Director. I like to take photos and stuff...
