Submit My Artifact

The Lawrence Hall of Science is looking to highlight the experiences of our communities in response to the pandemic as part of our new upcoming exhibit, “Community Connections: Resiliency and Creativity during COVID-19”. This exhibit will feature objects and stories from the community - and we need your help! How did you and your loved ones address the many challenges of the pandemic? What were some of the new skills or hobbies you learned? In what ways did you use your science skills to achieve your solutions?

Whether we realize it or not, we use science everyday to learn about the world and to find creative solutions to problems. Science happens everywhere! Science happens in our kitchens, gardens, schools and in the outdoors. You are doing science when you are being creative, making observations, using your senses or tools, asking questions, doing research, experimenting, building or designing.

Submissions

Exhibit display where artifacts will be held for the Community Connections: Resiliency and Creativity during COVID-19 exhibit.

We are looking for objects and stories from community members of all ages, especially our youth. Submissions can include: 2-D and 3-D creations, artifacts, stories, letters, journal entries, artwork, photos, videos, and more. Submissions will be displayed in protected cases and must be smaller than 20" wide x 20" tall x 9" deep, like the size of a school backpack. Objects cannot be living things, food or drink, or medical equipment.

To submit your artifact please complete the submission form to select a drop-off date and time. We will be collecting artifacts on Saturdays from 10am to 12pm through August 14th.

You will also be asked to complete the Lender Contract Form and for use of audio/video recordings, the Model Release Form. You are welcome to complete these ahead of time and bring them with you, or to complete them together with us during your drop-off time.

Expect to spend about 15 minutes talking with us during drop-off! Recording an optional audio description, to help make your artifact accessible to visitors with visual impairments, will take an additional five minutes. If you need to do a quick drop-off, please complete the artifact interview questions and Lender Contract Form while signing up for your slot and bring the completed forms with you.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to exploring this exhibit together when The Lawrence reopens!

Contact community.connections.exhibit@berkeley.edu if you have any questions.
