Stark: severe or bare in appearance or outline.


This past week at Mayyim Hayyim the walls were empty. The art has come down as we wait for the next exhibit to go up. A fresh coat of paint has seemingly washed the nicks and scratches off the walls, so that all that is left is the empty canvass of the building.

This is a time of physical transition before we see colorful art again. In many ways the building has become a physical substantiation of why people come here.

Starting from starkness, there is freedom to add.

Freedom to grow.

Freedom for renewal.



The walls are bare now, but there is beauty in the possibilities. As we hope for all who come here.
