Trinh Mai: That We Should Be Heirs

Extended

That We Should Be Heirs encourages participants to engage in the lost art of letter writing as a method of alleviating burdens and promoting healing. By putting hand to paper and joining one another in this collective activity of personal letter writing, we can share in this intimate process of privately documenting the stories, hardships, and triumphs that connect us all.

Letters written by immigrants and families of immigrants are encouraged. Letters handwritten in participants’ native tongues are welcomed and encouraged. Writings by survivors are encouraged. This project includes on-site activities and off-site workshops during which participants will be asked to write letters to themselves and/or others to pay respect to those who have shared in our heartaches and the approaches we’ve found to quiet our pain.

Talking With A Friend

Feb 13, 2019 - ongoing

Bern Schwartz embarked on an exciting new chapter in life when he turned his energy to
photography at the youthful age of sixty. Inspired by friendships he made with notable
photographers of the time, Schwartz’s goal was “to create pictures that are true to the
personality of each subject, and [would] stand the test of time…”.
Talking With A Friend: Portraits by Bern Schwartz showcases photographs made by the artist
from 1977-1978. The exhibition features portraits of Prince Charles, David Hockney, Twiggy,
and Zandra Rhodes among others. All of the images come from MOPA’s photography
collection, generously donated by the Bern Schwartz Family Foundation in 2017.
