A fall celebration and community gathering was held Saturday, Oct. 23, from 2 to 3 p.m. (rain date: Oct 24). The closing event for "Reflecting on our Pandemic Experience," above, at Menotomy Rocks Park.
Join us for poetry, music and conversation in an inspiring setting: an evocative art installation – woven into a beautiful pine forest – that invites you to reflect on Arlington's experiences of the pandemic.
Experience the installation before it closes in mid-November and meet the artist Nilou Moochhala.
Enjoy poetry by Francesco Fiondella from his collection of pandemic writing #SpontaneousCoronaverse.
Delight to short performances by clarinetist Todd Brunel and French hornists Hazel Dean Davis and Nick Auer.
Hear reflections by Dr. Robin Schoenthaler, Arlington's "Covid doctor," and Kickstand Cafe co-owner Emily Shea about sharing their stories through the project.
“Reflecting on our Pandemic Experience” was funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and contributions from the Friends of Menotomy Rocks Park and generous individual supporters.
