Artistic Director Emeritus Brighid O’Shaughnessy stopped by the Erasing the Distance Artistic Company meeting on Monday, June 12, 2017. Our artists gathered together to toast Brighid and celebrate her as an inspiration, friend, and founder of our organization.
Sharing the effect of Erasing the Distance’s mission on their lives, their professional growth as artists, and the personal connections that have grown through our work, Artistic Company members raised a glass. Of course, Brighid’s impact could not be contained to one toast. There were many toasts – and laughs, and tears, and memories exchanged. There were even toasts coming in via emails and texts from individuals unable to attend.
As we move forward, we hope Brighid comes to see us often. Her intelligence and joy light up every space she enters. We are working hard to make her proud of the organization she built.
Here’s to Brighid!
