Letter: Mayor Should Demand Mass MoCA Restore Children's Work

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am so upset at what Mass Moca did to the beautiful work that the children did on the bridge pedestals. How dare they cover it over, it broke those children's hearts and upset a lot of people.

I myself am furious with it and the fact that our mayor won't stand up for the children. He should demand the work be redone by the MoCA artist. There are plenty of pictures they can use to restore them. It's horrible that they think they can just do whatever they want. They do not own those pedestals nor do they pay taxes.

I don't know where they get the idea they can just do something like that.

Committee member Tara Jacobs said she was not comfortable potentially exposing staff to the novel coronavirus in motioning to go with the remote option to start and later transition to a hybrid model. 
 
"There's no good scenario but the decision to open the school and have someone dying or having health conditions for the rest of their life ... ," she said, motioning to start the school year remotely.
