Ellen Hirschberg: Bring back the Biennial

Published: 10/19/2021 1:37:07 PM

Be brave Northampton, “Uncancel the Biennial.”

   Uncancel the show

Why not? It is time for a party

An opening, and a closing

Wear name tags, share who you are, call each other by name

Meet on the lawn of Forbes Library, all welcome, take a journey upstairs to look at the art

Think Madson’s piece, to say the least, has provoked

Thank you Gazette, the well written stories, opened my eyes and fed my mind

Art has done what art can do

After the show has been up, let’s meet again to close it down, for real this time

Make the concerns of equity and fairness heard and acted upon

Let your eyes see, your voice heard, your body recognized

Learn together to do better

Be Brave Northampton

Let the show go on
