One Lens: Share Your COVID-19 Experience

Pennsylvania First Lady Frances Wolf has invited Pennsylvanians to participate in the statewide virtual photo exhibit One Lens: Sharing Our Common Views. The exhibit seeks to document and celebrate the hard work and commitment of all Pennsylvanians during the COVID-19 pandemic.



As First Lady Frances Wolf said, “We are living through an extraordinary moment right now. How we live, how we communicate, and how we educate our children have changed drastically since last March, but we all still yearn for a sense of community because that is what reminds us of our own strength and tenacity.” To offer a place of community, the One Lens exhibit was created as an opportunity for Pennsylvanians to share their stories, inspire each other, and help each other heal while documenting the history of this time.

The exhibit highlights the importance of preserving history by encouraging Pennsylvanians to share their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic through photography. Submitted images will be displayed for public viewing and saved as visual documentation of the pandemic.

Exhibit Themes

The exhibit will cover the following themes:

    • Our Heroes, paying homage to the pandemic heroes who cannot stay home.
    • Our Lives, looking at how we spend our time when no one is watching.
    • Our Communities, showcasing Pennsylvanians uniting in the face of a global health crisis.
