Everhart Digital Zine Library

The EM ZINE’s first issue is a collection of the images, writing, art, and ideas of individuals’ responses to prompts that represent their experiences during quarantine. All submissions were sent in by the Everhart Museum community, and is now a part of the Everhart Museum’s Zine Library. This issue includes responses to questions like: Who is someone you miss during quarantine? What can you see from your window? What is a sentimental object that you have in your home?
