Description

The day that Saint Vincent College announced its closure in response to the COVID-19 pandemic coincided with the opening reception for "Caught in a Glimpse: Portraiture of Human Expression," a student art exhibition by SVC senior Sydney Hoffman at Latrobe Art Center.

One of the safety precautions that Latrobe Art Center took was to provide a hand sanitizer station at the opening reception. We also labeled the bottle due to reports of people stealing hand sanitizer provided at other businesses.

About 30 people showed up to the exhibition-- a decent turnout considering the situation. Only a day or two later would the federal government recommend that people gather in groups of 10 or less.
