Creating Apart

In summer of 2020, filmmaker Mike Scholtz created a series of nine short videos, each featuring a local artist who found themselves creating apart. Perfect Duluth Day will be presenting these videos twice a week during September and October, and then hosting the collection on this page. These shorts are just a small part of a larger project called “Stories of Wisdom from Bodies in Separation: Archiving the Coronavirus Pandemic Through the Lens of Humanities” which was organized by UMD professors David Beard and Devaleena Das. They received a CARES grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fund this project.
