Starting mid-March 2020, The New York Historical Society has been collecting artifacts from around New York City with the goal of documenting the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown for future learning. Starting with hand sanitizers, masks, gloves and household items, their collection has now expanded to include photographs of empty New York streets, quarantine artworks  – a rock with “This Too Shall Pass” painted on to it, paintings of rainbows  made by children and other ephemera.
