Suddenly Last Summer

  • May 14, 2016 - October 09, 2016

Summary of Exhibition

Suddenly Last Summer brings together the work of local artists Donna Haynes, Michelle Weinberg and Leah Brown who have been asked to listen to the song Suddenly Last Summer by The Motels and create site specific installations inspired by the song in the museum.

The song itself evokes a deeper longing or melancholy for the loss of the things associated with summer and perhaps the realization that we can never go back and/or do not want to go back but cannot help but to recall.

Suddenly Last Summer
by The Motels

It happened one summer
It happened one time
It happened forever
For a short time
A place for a moment
An end to dream
Forever I loved you
Forever it seemed

One summer never ends
One summer never began
It keeps me standing still
It takes all my will
And then suddenly
Last summer

Sometimes I never leave
But sometimes I would
Sometimes I stay too long
Sometimes I would
Sometimes it frightens me
Sometimes it would
Sometimes I'm all alone
And wish that I could

and then suddenly
Last summer
Until suddenly
Last Summer
