New Year 2021-Pandemic and Beyond

To say 2020 was challenging is an understatement. It was meant to be 2020 CLEAR VISION.  Instead it was 2020 BLURRED VISION and was devastating for so many. Like many other organizations, businesses, and nonprofits, Life Frames, Inc. & A Living Library were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in ways that proved unimaginable. Where meetings and classes could go virtual, planting and pruning trees could not. 

The pandemic slowed everybody down,” A.L.L. Founder & Director, Bonnie Ora Sherk, says.

Still, with challenge came opportunities. “So many deaths and lives were disrupted, but, as we all slowed down, our sensitivity, reflections, and appreciation for each other and all of life, as well as certain activities were being felt more deeply.  And, otherwise, we might have missed these qualities and important experiences.”

With the new year,” Sherk says, “I am optimistic for a better and healthier future for all, bringing new opportunities, as well as nurturing and strengthening our ongoing ecological transformations and integrated hands-on learning programs.”

A.L.L. is carrying this spirit into the new year with both ongoing and emerging projects:

Ongoing projects:

Emerging projects:

  • SF Art Institute Harker Award, Exhibition, Public Talk, Teaching in 2021-2022 plus A.L.L involvement in SFAI Reimagining 
  • Invitation to participate in Liverpool Biennial, March-June 2021
  • Invitation to create one-person exhibition in Huesca, Spain at Centre de Arte y Naturaleza-Fundación Beulas (CDAN)
  • Invitation to join Ecology Arts Team at Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, Chongching, China
  • Opening of the new Roosevelt Island Public Library adjacent to RI Living Library & Think Park Gardens at the end of January 2021  
  • Development of International Gardens in RI Living Library & Think Park - NYC 

Please stay updated on A.L.L news and project developments by visiting our website and following us on social media----> 

You might also consider making a Donation or Volunteering as a way to show support in the new year. 

Stay tuned, and Happy New Year!
