Online Exhibits

COVID-19 presented the Logan Museum with an opportunity to re-imagine how we construct and share exhibit content. Pivoting to an online format presents new learning and engagement opportunities for students, faculty, and staff and ensures exhibit content is more broadly accessible. We hope our new online exhibits inspire collaboration, dialogue, and knowledge production during and after the current pandemic.
