“SO powerful and moving!”
We heard these words again and again, as hundreds of people came to journey through the FLIGHT installation this past week.
Thank you, thank you so much to artists Robin Brooks, Martha Brouwer, Harriet Diamond, Mary Frongillo, Laura Iveson, Phyllis Labanowski, Catherine Linberg, Mona Shiber, Rochelle Shicoff, Naomi Tannen, Denie Whalen, refugee women from Burundi and refugee youth from Bhutan for creating fabulous, powerful, provocative art and for all the ways they offered their time and energy to making the show happen. And to the many other behind-the-scenes folks, equally as important to making the show happen, who showed up and did the grunt work so graciously. None of this could have been possible without the wonderful support of the members, pastors and staff of First Churches, who gave over Lyman Hall during their Holy Week to try something different and new.
So many people told us that this show MUST travel that we are now exploring that option. Stay tuned! (But…not before Art & Soul, including Friday Art Wind Down and DWELL, takes a break during the month of April).
May the hope and beauty of Spring rise in us all….
