Maggie Lemak: Threshold


Maggie Lemak

Skin is our largest sensory organ,

yet we are told not to touch.

Hugs are known to heal, and yet

we don’t embrace enough.

Americans are among the world’s least tactile people.

My wish for you is to enter Threshold with intention

— and to leave feeling touched.

Kindly remove your shoes.

A special thank you to Ellen High, Gilly Yerington, Joe Trumpey, Frannie Ciolek, Asher Nelson, Tammy Nahra, Max Nahra, Katie Rubin, David Chung, & Brynn Higgins-Stirrup. Your support in the form of labor, materials, time, car rides, and our fair share of hugs made my imagination a reality.
