You are living through historic events. The Gale Center is collecting personal narratives, images, and (when safe to do so) reusable masks for its upcoming exhibit, Reconnecting. Reconnecting will share our community’s stories and images to create a snapshot of life during quarantine.
We invite you to share your story with the community and make sure that this important time in history becomes part of South Jordan’s Gale Center museum. Submissions for personal narratives and images are open. Dates for donation and lending of masks to be announced.
*Submissions will become part of the Gale Center’s collection, and may be used in whole or in part for exhibitions and marketing purposes.
**If you are not a South Jordan resident, we encourage you to reach out to your city’s museum first.
Share Your Story
Share your experience in quarantine with the South Jordan community. These can be short stories or longer narratives. We invite you to be vulnerable and honest as we come together and learn about each other’s experiences and reconnect as a community. If there are those in your life who do not have access to a computer and would like to contribute, we encourage you to help them share their story.
This submission is open to all ages. Participants under the age of 18 must have parental permission. Your submission form must include your legal name, however, you may elect to remain anonymous if your submission is used in the Reconnecting exhibit.
Share An Image
Quarantine has sparked creativity across the world with hospitals, schools, churches, and businesses creating public displays of solidarity and messages of hope. If you have seen any COVID-19 related public art in South Jordan – from sidewalk chalk drawings to banners – please submit them.
Parent or guardian permission is required for images that contain underage individuals to be identified.
Do you have a cool mask that you are wearing during quarantine? Do you want to show it off when things are back to normal? The Gale Center will be collecting masks from South Jordan residents as part of the upcoming Reconnecting exhibit at the museum.
*Donations of reusable masks will be accepted once state guidelines no longer recommend wearing them. Please check back for further information.
