Forty-eight museums and galleries in Vermont are responding to the demands of the moment.

Led by the Vermont Curators Group – a network of museums, galleries, and cultural centers specializing in art, history, and science – ​2020 Vision: Reflecting on a World-Changing Year​ ​explores the events that have impacted everyone in 2020, with a passport program to encourage exploration. Spanning the state from top to bottom, 48 members of the Vermont Curators Group will mount exhibitions both in-person and online during 2020 and beyond, to create a statewide cultural conversation exploring​ subjects related to the pandemic, the racial justice movement in America, the current political landscape, and digital experiences of all kinds.

The exhibition calendar at ​Vermont Curators​ is updated frequently and includes an indication as to whether a listing is for an in-person or digital activity.
