Our new exhibit, Pandemic Perspectives, is now open to the public! Twelve exhibit panels placed throughout the museum invite visitors to explore connections between their personal experience during the current pandemic and Saranac Lake’s history as a community that welcomed people suffering from infectious disease. Each panel explores a particular reaction, from positive feelings like “resilience” or “gratitude,” to more difficult ones such as “loneliness” and “fear.”
Be sure to come visit the museum to explore the new exhibit and share your pandemic perspective.
Our thanks to the Lake Champlain Basin Program, Humanities New York, and the New York State Council on the Arts for supporting this exhibit and related public programs on the Cure Porch on Wheels. Stay tuned for details about upcoming events!

Last night, we held an opening reception with Members of Historic Saranac Lake, and we were so happy to see two nurses from Adirondack Health at the party, Lisa Keegan and Sara Diaz. Lisa shared some of her photographs for the exhibit, including the title image of Sara.
