THIS IS US
is a two day celebration of difference and unity in downtown Greenfield. Following the destruction of the portraits on the First National Bank on Bank Row of Joe Dulude II taken by photographer, Wheaton Mahoney, the greater Greenfield creative community came together to look for the positive in the event. THIS IS US is their response. Eggtooth Productions invites everyone who would like to have their portrait taken to come to 156 Main Street, have their photo snapped from 2 pm til 4 pm on Saturday, October 5, 2019. When the photo session is complete they will create slide shows of the portraits to be projected upon buildings including the First National Bank and the Salvation Army building after dark on October 5, from about 8 pm til about 10 pm.
In addition to the new portraits, they will project Sara K. Lyons’ (with Rhonda Anderson) project previously commissioned by Eggtooth and supported by MCC, and the Markham Nathan Fund for Social Justice. It’s called Vital. Vibrant. Visible. and it is a series of photographic portraits of local indigenous people who live here in the Pioneer Valley.
In the spirit of coming together, Joe Dulude came up with the idea of taking photographic portraits of the diverse community that truly represents Franklin County and Greenfield. With that in mind, they have invited four local photographers: Wheaton Mahoney, Kate Hunter, Anja Schutz, and Sara K. Lyons to participate in a pop-up, drop in photo booth. Dulude had this to say, “I wanted to respond to hate with positivity and inclusion for all of the community. Greenfield is such a diverse town and I wanted to show that diversity on a grander scale. The only way to move on from hate is with love and compassion.”
Wheaton Mahoney’s portraits of Joe Dulude II in drag will also be projected, the second time they will light up the night. The first time being at a showing last month in response to the destruction.
