I Am More: Massachusetts Unveiling

I just woke up from a two hour nap so I think it’s time to share some photos from the first public unveiling of I Am More: Massachusetts at the Worcester PopUp on Saturday.

All in all, a satisfying end (beginning) to a year and a half of work.

A special thank you to the Worcester PopUp and the City of Worcester for providing the space, and to the Center for Living and Working for volunteering at the event. Thank you to our sponsors for providing the frames and transportation. And the biggest thank yous to my parents for providing the food and drinks, and to Iain and Dylan for everything else.

  2. Dear Amy, I just watched your opening on the Boston channel link provided by Donna on the GMG blog, and I am just so proud of your amazing idea,efforts and talent, In healing yourself you have helped to heal and inspire so many others. I love the pictures you have posted here and it took me back to the powerful impact your pictures and essays had on me when we saw your show this summer, as it did for the whole family. I wish we lived closer so we could have attended, it looks like it was the success it deserves to be! Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2020!
