2020 Vision Initiative

In the year 2020, the Vermont Curators Group undertook its first statewide project with 36 cultural institutions participating in a suite of exhibitions on the theme 2020 Vision: Seeing the World Through Technology.

Those plans were upended, and the theme gained new meaning, as a global pandemic forced the
closure of cultural institutions, and stay-home orders forced us to see the world through technology in drastically new ways. Vermont’s museums and galleries rapidly shifted to presenting content and engaging audiences online, through and more.

The pandemic and other events of the past year have caused Vermont’s cultural institutions to rethink their priorities and rearrange their schedules around the demands of our moment, reflecting on the world-changing events that have impacted us all in 2020.

In the fall of 2020, Vermont Curators Group relaunches the 2020 Vision project as 2020 Vision: Reflecting on a World-Changing Year with an expanded theme that encompasses in-person and online exhibitions and events, on themes of technology, projects that respond to the pandemic, the racial justice movement, the election, and more.
