MBACC would like to recognize Dedham Shine's extraordinary efforts to promote the arts in Dedham. The recent Dedham Public Art Project captured the hearts, mind and spirit of Dedham - and countless other in New England and around the country - who learned the story of the "crouching rabbit" as the featured icon in Dedham's acclaimed Dedham Pottery, which made a significant contribution to the arts and crafts movement.
Beyond the symbolic statement, and spotlight it gave to the hugely talented artists in our community, one will never be able to calculate the love and joy this public art project generated among children, families and visitors who fell in love with these extraordinary pieces of art.
The entire board of Mother Brook Arts and Community Center (MBACC) would also like to publicly thank Dedham Shines and the entire Dedham Public Art Project Team for naming our organization as the beneficiary of the project's proceeds. The road ahead for our new Center is exciting - but a long and challenging one - as we start up and launch what we hope will bring decades of arts & culture programming with economic ripples that will reverberate in East Dedham and the entire town. Dedham Shine's creative partnership, advocacy, and financial assistance will help Dedham shine for generations to come.
With deepest thanks,
Mother Brook Arts and Community Center
