The Hope Chronicles
Through the challenges of the past year and a half, we’ve learned that strengthening our sense of hope can come from a wide variety of sources including loved ones, our furry friends, hobbies, sports, and travel, among other things. For new hire Sydney Woodward, she finds hope in art; the old and the new, creating and admiring. The pandemic has allowed Sydney to spend more time than ever before putting her paintbrush to paper, which was a great way for her to illustrate her continued hope for the future. With the world opening back up, she looks forward to returning to art museums so she can soak in others’ expressions of hope. Thank you for inspiring us with your talent with us, Sydney!
