From the early days of the pandemic in March, 2020 to the close of the calendar year, Prairie Arts Center offered to take Porch Portraits for anyone in Stillwater interested in helping us capture this very unique moment in our personal and shared histories. The concept was simple: for a few minutes at a set time, everyone in a household gathered on the porch (or deck, stoop, community yard, etc.) and one of our photographers took photographic portraits from a safe distance. Our aim was very simple- to document, memorialize, and capture our community during an unprecedented time. We were very aware of being a part of history and wanted to do what we could to remember and celebrate the resilience of Stillwater and its citizens. The images taken comprise our virtual Porch Portraits gallery.
