Gathering Time, Pomo Art During the Pandemic, is the first exhibit of Contemporary Pomo art to ever show at the Grace Hudson Museum.The multi-media show stems from a collaboration between the museum and Eastern Pomo artist Meyo Marrufo, who serves as guest curator.

The exhibition features artwork from numerous Pomo artists created during the dark time of the pandemic. During lockdown, Pomo artists throughout Mendocino, Lake and Sonoma counties continued to create beautiful and hopeful pieces aimed to promote healing and keep their people and culture alive. The exhibit showcases the wide range of skills of these Pomo artists, and celebrates the resilience of Pomo people
