Mark Gold emailed us, saying ‘I believe this would have been part of the MASS MoCA 500 Fund Committee on the MoCA premises. If so, this group was vested with the responsibility for raising private money from the community to meet the "match" of state funding. The group in the photo, from left, consists of Mark Gold, Jack Bond, Bob Collins, Bob Bashevkin, Steve Crowe and, of course, a very young Joe Thompson. Actually, all of us were a bit younger back then.’ TThanks also to Dinny Taylor and David Bond. The photo originally ran Npv. 21, 1996.
