‘Words Matter’ on Display at Adams Square

The Adams Hill Neighborhood Association, in coordination with the Community Services and Parks Department, is sponsoring a holiday exhibit at the landmark Richfield Gas Station in Adams Square Mini Park. The exhibit, called “Words Matter,” was installed by artist Cathy Hrenda and will be on display until Jan. 12.
“At this time of year, many people reflect on their religious and cultural traditions. Kindness is an ancient value appearing in teachings from Confucius, to Christ, to karma,” the artist’s statement said. “The phrases shown here are modern takes on those age-old lessons.”
The phrases included:

  • “The love you take is equal to the love you make.”
  • “You get served what you deserve.”
  • “Treat others the way you want to be treated.”
  • “Give it to get it.”
    “Kindness and sharing are some of the most important building blocks of community,” the statement continued. “In our current era of dissension it is more important than ever to reach out and find our shared humanity. Expressing kindness is almost always possible and seldom regretted.”
