On Sunday Iain and I got in our second home, the UHaul van, and traveled to South Shore Plaza to pick up the I Am More exhibit, brought it back to the Paint Factory, unloaded, re-loaded a different I Am More exhibit and drove it to Burlington Mall, where we unloaded after closing and set up a new exhibit! Then we got stuck in road construction on the way home and staggered to bed.
We are grateful to Burlington Mall staff for the fabulous location:
You can find it by entering the mall next to Legal Seafood and going straight to the center/right. The exhibit will be up through May 8th (Mother’s Day) and will then move to The Shops at Chestnut Hill.
This month if you grab a copy of NorthShore Magazine you can see an article about I Am More written by Karen Nascembini, with photos by Jared Charney. I received a kind message from Jared in January after he had been escorted to the mall by his daughter, where he happened upon the I Am More exhibit there and found it “quite wonderful.” He eventually pitched a story about the project to NorthShore magazine and we had a fun morning a few weeks ago, poking around our property and the Paint Factory with his camera. Karen signed on as the writer, having connections to both of us, and did a better job of explaining the project than I ever could. You’ll be learning more about both of them soon.
Which brings us to today, in which I was patting myself on the back for receiving $800 in donations this month, only to receive a call that I could put a 10 in front of that number. That’s quite a few frames and a whole lot of UHaul van rentals!! I’m still digesting this crazy news and forever grateful to the generous friends keeping the message going.
