Past Exhibition Spotlight

The Gratitude Project: Hilda Green Demsky

The Gratitude Project is a profound exploration of the collective sentiments during the challenging years of the Covid-19 pandemic. In response to The New York Times' invitation on Thanksgiving 2020, thirty Poets Laureate of the United States submitted concise expressions of gratitude for their states after the tumultuous year of the pandemic. Hilda Green Demsky, inspired by these powerful words, created a series of oil paintings interpreting each poem, resulting gin a unique blend of poetry and visual art.
