Fall Celebration and Community Gathering

Saturday, October 23, 2-3 pm (Rain date: Oct 24)

Closing Event for “Reflecting on our Pandemic Experience

Please 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 Dr.” and Kickstand Cafe co-owner Emily Shea on sharing their stories through the project.

Reflecting on our Pandemic Experience was funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and generous contributions from the Friends of Menotomy Rocks Park and  individual supporters.
