Hindsight is 2020

If hindsight is in fact 2020, how will we, as individuals, as families and as a community reflect upon this unprecedented time?  What is to be learned from the global pandemic in our midst?  And when future generations look back on 2020, what will they find?

Hindsight is 2020 presents a visual story of our community’s creative response to the pandemic and how Scarsdalians have come together to support those within and outside our village during these extraordinary times.   Featuring the work of local artists and contributors, the exhibition includes paintings, works on paper, photography, sculpture, textiles, poetry and the written word.

Lauren Bender, Curator, December 2020

This exhibition is made possible by the Friends of the Scarsdale Library, with special thanks to Diane Greenwald and Elyse Klayman.
