Making History, Day By Day:

 Kodiak, Our Stories, & the Covid-19 Pandemic

June 10th – August 31st 2022

A reflection on the COVID-19 experience in Kodiak, this exhibit featured stories, photos, memes, and more from Kodiak community members, plus special works by Ronald Jackson of Slim Jones Ink commissioned by the Kodiak History Museum.

The material shown in the exhibit was collected through KHM’s Day by Day Initiative. In the beginning of the pandemic, KHM recognized that this pandemic is history in the making, and we sought to collect digital files for future researchers to study. Some of the photos and reflections sent to KHM during the pandemic make up the bulk of this exhibit.

It was previously a traveling exhibit that was on display atthe Best Western Kodiak Inn, Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium, and the Kodiak Public Library. This was the first time the entire exhibit was on view at the same time -previously, only parts of the exhibit were displayed.

To supplement this exhibit, KHM partnered with KMXT to produce The Long Haul–a radio program reflecting on the COVID-19 experience in Kodiak. Check out the episodes on our blog page!
