RICHMOND, Va. -- The Valentine Museum has received more than 70 submissions for their series asking students to share their experiences to document this unprecedented moment in history during the COVID-19 crisis.
The "Richmond Stories from Richmond Kids" campaign, which launched earlier this month, has received entries that range from essays to text messages to drawings and paintings.
The Valentine's Director Of Communications Eric Steigleder said there is a one message that rings true through all of the works: hope.
"This definite message of even though they are uncertain and they are unsure, they have this kind of overarching idea that when the Richmond community comes together, we can address these concerns," Steigleder said.
Officials with the museum said they will continue to collect submissions.
