Last night I stopped by Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School building in Providence to attend to the Our Voice/ Our Choice art installation. A few of the photos had fallen from the display due to the extreme humidity, so I was there to repair the fixtures. The process took me almost two hours, and, while I worked, medical students walked throughout the quiet hallway intermittently. Most of the students were hurried, bustling to and from what I assumed was a first class period of their new semester. One student paused, however, to take a look at the photos I had just rehung. He had a huge smile on his face as he snapped a photo of the artwork with his cell phone.
“These are so cool… I love them.” He was admiring the TWP uterus mask community photos.
“Yes, I am,” he said. He sounded proud, but also a little tired as he formed the words.
