“At this particular moment, there’s something important about looking at those [Coney Island] pictures. They show such a wonderful mix of people, different classes, ages, and races coming together. At some level, that seems to be missing from American culture at this moment.”
So says Sarah Kennel, photography curator at the Peabody Essex Museum who will be a part of the tribute evening for Harold Feinstein on June 29th at the Firehouse Theater in Newburyport, MA.
Thank you to James Sullivan for this wonderful piece that appeared in the Boston Globe today and for Tony Decaneas and Elin Spring for joining in the festive evening, which is sure to be filled with a great deal of warmth and humor. Tickets are available here! And here’s a teaser from the article!
