A fabulous Fun Art Friday to you! Today was the scheduled opening for Springbrook’s Art Show, “This Moment,” at the Fenimore Museum in Cooperstown. We have postponed the show until next year, but we still wanted to share the artwork that everyone worked so hard on. This art was created by students at the School at Springbrook and residents from the Community Homes program. Thanks to Kirchelle Alston, Art Therapist at The School at Springbrook, and to Jacob Burrows, Residence Counselor in Community Homes, who coordinated the submission of this artwork, and of course, to all the wonderful and talented artists! We look forward to showing your work in person in April 2021!
