VCCA presents Coming to Know What We’ve Always Known, a collaborative arts installation by the winners of The Commission 2014–poet Sally Dawidoff and visual artist Georgia June Goldberg. Thornton Wilder wrote, “The response we make when we ‘believe’ a work of the imagination is that of saying: ‘This is the way things are. I have always known it without being fully aware that I knew it.’” This installation–an homage to the beauty of nature–takes that statement as its inspiration.
