Springfield Mosaic – Edward Cohen

springfield-mosaic-show-cardVPC’s newest exhibit is Springfield Mosaic by Edward Cohen, who says it is “a photo exhibit that documents the rich diversity that is Springfield. Within its borders, Springfield is home to people who originate from all over the world, including such locations as Italy, the Island of Puerto Rico, Vietnam, Somalia, Ireland, Iraq, Ghana, and Native American people from right here in North America and many more. While we all live and work within the city’s borders, it has not always been easy. Organizations such as the Healing Racism Institute of the Pioneer Valley, the Springfield Branch of the NAACP, and other organizations help to guide us to understand that which divides us such as Racism and Sexism and provide healing that we may better coexist free of these divisions.

The exhibit features people’s portraits, and people engaged in a variety of activities through out our community. The photographs will also include works from other photographers such as:

  • Greyhawk
  • Leonard Underwood
  • Springfield Republican newspaper photographers David Molnar, Don Treeger
  • former Springfield Republican photographer Michael Gordon.

The purpose of the exhibit is to try to bring our community together by appreciating our diversity.  Edward Cohen
