Ward Museum in Salisbury creates virtual programs to keep communities engaged during COVID-19

SALISBURY, Md.–In Salisbury,  the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art is heavily relying on their online presence to keep the community engaged.

Kristin Sullivan, Executive Director of the Ward Museum, closed their doors March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And during this time they’ve created new programming and improved existing ones.

We’re told they are creating virtual tours, informational videos, art demonstrations, and environmental education.

Sullivan said these new online programs are a way to connect the community during this time.

“As we’re really getting this ball rolling more and more, interesting ideas are coming out at staff, so you’re going to be seeing more and more. I think this is really just the beginning of a new way of interacting with the Ward Museum,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan told 47ABC that they are preparing to host their 1oth annual Art in Nature Photo Festival in July, but for the first time it will be virtual.
