Prairie State Museums Project - Summer 2020 Video

In partnership with local media journalism across Illinois, this project elevates the stories of “Prairie State” museums and their inherent community and economic value as they face the COVID-19 crisis. With the help of 16 freelance journalists, the project produced over 30 articles for 13 state publications and one national media outlet. From Chicago's National Public Housing Museum to the Katherine Dunham Museum in East St. Louis, the project showcased the diversity of Illinois's museums and populations they serve.
