Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic up ended any sense of normalcy, President Foster put out a call to faculty, staff and students to participate in the Open Studio. The goal of the Open Studio video sessions were to reinforce the role of the university and to spread some positivity, uplifting thoughts and remind everyone that we will in fact get through this crisis together. Kamstra and Curtis talk about what it was like to be involved in the project and why it was important to share the humanities during a global pandemic.
