A project previously scheduled by the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay is now being used as a tool to help participants get through the “Safer at Home” order. The museum started a sketchbook challenge last month asking for drawings, photographs, poetry or observations from residents taking part in the project for posting to the museum's social media page. Museum Executive Director Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead says the project is focusing on helping people share how they're getting through the "getting through".
Meissner-Gigstead says such accounts prove the therapeutic value of the arts and provide a perspective for future generations.
Blank sketchbooks are available now and may be picked up from the literature box outside the south door of the Miller Art Museum office, on Nebraska Street. You're asked to take only one per participant. Completed sketchbooks can be dropped off or mailed in after the pandemic subsides.
