Reflecting Our Pandemic Experience

Please join the Arlington Commission for Arts & Culture 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 Moochhala’s 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.
