A jewel of our public art in Chelmsford is back!

Eagle-eyed library users may have noticed that Immersion, the original sculpture created by Christopher Polson, has been missing lately but is now back up! Installed on the side of the Carriage House in 2017, it had gotten weathered over the last couple of winters. Now refurbished by the artist, the colors really stand out and should hold up even better in the future!

Chelmsford MA, As the Full Moon (Harvest Moon) rises above the tree line, Batman keeps watch over the town Common.
Stop by and support this awesome artist!!
I meant to replace the former post with this question, which I ask seriously: "Why is the CCA making no provision for the naturally immune to attend concerts?" A doctor's letter would probably do the job.
The concerts need to honestly serve the public including the many people in Chelmsford who are naturally immune to the recent disease. Based on recent reporting in the Wall Street Journal, about 36 per cent of Americans have had covid. That means about 10,000 Chelmsford citizens are immune and have no public health reason to be vaccinated. Why are planning to exclude them? The naturally immune are much less likely to get or spread this illness than the vaccinated are. You realize, right, that research in Israel shows the naturally immune are 13X less likely to get covid than the vaccinated. In other words, the vaccinated will, when their protection fades, be 13 times more likely to get sick than those who have recovered. We healthy people who are immune resent the needless bullying that's going on with these "you can't attend culture unless you show vaccine papers." CCA says its motives are public safety, but I think not. I think CCA wants to be on the majority political side, for its own benefit.
