Here’s the latest in Dartmouth news. Andy Moerlein spent the summer working on a collaborative art project in Keelung, Taiwan, with his wife, Donna Dodson. They are building a monumental sculpture that connects Keelung with New Bedford, Massachusetts, while drawing attention to the uncertain future of our oceans and generating awareness of global environmental and wildlife issues. With a rotating staff of volunteers and assistance from the National Museum of Science and Technology, Andy and his wife use the act of creating this bamboo piece as a way to explore myth making with top high school art students. You can learn more about Andy’s work at themythmakers.blogspot.com.

Anne Quirk has written two children’s books that will be published by Knopf this fall. The first is The Good Fight: The Feuds of the Founding Fathers (and How They Shaped the Nation) and is aimed at kids between ages 8 and 12. The second book was composed in collaboration with Khzir Khan, the Goldstar father who spoke at the Democratic convention. The latter is titled This Is Our Constitution. Although intended for those 10-14, Anne notes that it “might be a handy refresher for adults too.” (To paraphrase Cole Porter, “Brush up your Constitution.”)

All this follows on the amazing pop-up celebration of the arts organized for our 40th reunion by the indomitable Nora Odendhal and Gar Waterman ’78. There were two parts to this event. In the Nearburg Arts Forum classmates Holly Benson, Amy Cammann Cholnoky, Jim Guth, Andy, Mike Mosher, Nora, Bob Overhiser, Kathy Phillips, Betty Stroock and Lucy Townsend exhibited an astonishing array of paintings, photographs, sculptures and books. Meanwhile, in the Lowe Theater audiences were treated to short talks, music and art videos, poems, musical compositions and a one-act play by Jennifer “Tweety” Warren, Tom Ropelewski, Andy, Elizabeth Michelman, Mike Mosher, Evy Chan and Jay MacNamee. Although I tried to see and hear it all, there was too much talent on display to take in everything. If you are wondering if we’re creative, the answer is an emphatic yes! This event is likely to continue in the future. So you have plenty of notice: Pick up a paintbrush, put pen to paper (I’m old-school) or create a dance routine. You don’t have to be a professional artist, just passionate.

We set a record this summer for 40th reunion attendance—at 400. Nonetheless, there were classmates on the West Coast who could not get to Hanover. Our next classwide event is planned for Santa Fe, New Mexico, in late August of 2020, when, despite our best efforts to the contrary, most of us will be 65. Block out the time on your long-term calendars, because we want you to come. (And, yes, we women continue to look better than you guys. Just sayin’.)
