I thought the strong theme of community and the speeches focus on us as a whole were more like the MassArt I grew to love over 32 years ago. A place where people were decent, creative, without horizontal hostility, siloing and information suppression. David’s sincerity and decency as a human being came through in his speech. I was really surprised and was really happy to hear him say he was going to rename the president’s gallery to re-honor a great person. The weather and perfect day was a perfect back drop for this day. Thank you to all of you for working hard to setup this important day for our community.
