The community’s pandemic reflections will be on display in an exciting collaborative exhibition, Our Town: Williamsburg 2020 Community Art Project, made possible by a partnership between Williamsburg Regional Library, William & Mary Libraries, Muscarelle Museum of Art, and local arts organization CultureFix VA. The exhibition is mounted on the Stryker Center windows facing Boundary Street and City Square and visible from outside the building 24/7 to allow for open air social distancing and a dynamic street art experience. Stop by to check it out today through Oct. 31! More info go to wrl.org/our-town-2020/
