Thank you, Joe Thompson

To the editor:

Now acclaimed as one of the most exciting and influential art venues on Earth, Mass MoCA owes its success to many amazing people — especially its peerless founding director, Joe Thompson, who’s stepping down.

After a Herculean effort spanning more than three decades, Joe has added inestimable value to the Berkshires, and earned a place in the pantheon of art world legends.

Congrats, all best and thanks, Joe.

Lincoln Russell, Stockbridge
