It’s Monumental . . . Ending the Silence is a virtual arts and communications festival to engage our campus and community in a public dialogue. We will use Arts and Communications to explore the dynamics of racism/antiracism, anti-blackness, white supremacy culture and the fluid concepts that develop as we expand our understanding of these phenomena in our society. Works created across our campus and community will be the springboards for public forums and personal conversations as we grapple to understand the complexity of building and sustaining a multiracial democracy.

A comic fable for our times; set long ago in the cursed village of Kulyenchikov. Leon
Tolchinsky, a young, enthusiastic teacher arrives only to discover that the village has
fallen under a curse of stupidity. As it turns out, he has only 24 hours to break the
curse by teaching the young maiden, Sophia Zubritsky something; anything! If he
fails to break the curse, he must leave Kulyenchikov or surrender to the curse and
become stupid like the rest of the village. Simon has crafted a wacky and witty fable
of foolery with surprisingly philosophical wisdom about the nature of knowing.
