Mickett/Stackhouse Irma Piece at the MFA

This week Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse started an installation piece about hurricane Irma. They are two artists working together and very thoughtfully included our communities' input on how individuals experienced Irma. The artists have asked citizens to make comments on a prepared disk that would be added to a wall installation. The disks represent moons. Mickett explained, "The hurricane changed how we were thinking about our lives, and we suspected other people were experiencing the same thing. Out of this consideration came Irma Reflections, a space in which people's experience during the hurricane could be acknowledged and honored. We decided that instead of focusing of the fear or damage from the storm, we would ask people to communicate their positive experiences, writing thanks to the one or many who provided them with support or assistance during Irma. Those are the moments we all want to remember." The artists will be in the Museum of Fine Arts gallery every Wednesday from noon to 2pm until December 3, 2017. They will continue working with the public on this installation.
