The American West is on fire. Every 80 seconds, someone dies from the coronavirus.  Millions of college students could not return to campus this fall. Protests for racial justice continue across the country.

What We Do: Showcase Your Work in a Virtual Exhibition

A panel of judges will review and select submissions. Work will then be curated in a virtual exhibition. Viewers will be able to click on thumbnails of each piece of work, whether it be to look at a photograph or painting, listen to a song, or watch a Merrimack actor read or perform a Merrimack writer’s work.
