“As The Polygon emerges out of the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as we start to initiate programs and events in person again, I’m immensely grateful to see the Gallery acting as a catalyst for social activity and connection in ways that we have not seen for some time. We are at a pivot point in the pandemic, one that is hopefully not a lull in a storm, and the Gallery is taking stock of two very difficult years and the lessons we have learned throughout.
I would like to begin by acknowledging the immense good will and hard work of The Polygon’s staff, who have steered the institution forward not just intact, but in growing health. It’s a testament to a great team that the institution is thriving in ways that also build resiliency in the face of uncertainty and difficulty, and that the Gallery continues to stand for opportunities for artists and their communities above all else.”
