Perhaps the reality of how much and how fast the world has changed didn't really start to sink in until you tried to figure out to have an online playdate for your toddler. Or how to explain to your (perhaps) startled child why everyone was walking around in masks.

Duluth has launched a project to get kids designing masks and talking about why people are wearing them. You can find more information about the program - and a template - here.

Annie mentioned an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art from a couple of years back, called "Is Fashion Modern?" You can read more about it here and listen to an audio playlist of interviews here.

Studio tours are tailor-made for the folks who like to see how somethng is created - or who love Zoom meetings for the chance to see what other people's houses are like. Here are some you can enjoy without having to fill your gas tank.
