Behind the scenes with Myron Polenberg as he worked on Epiphany: It’s the Cracks that Let the Light in, currently on display at Hudson Hall, Hudson, N.Y., August 28th – November 1st, 2020
Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget the perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
