“Light andHope”by Retired Executive CBADirector TerrenceMurphy is the artist’s reflectionof humanity’s untold loss, suffering and sorrow from the ongoing pandemic with hope for the future. The painting’s forest scene and vivid sunrise is a tranquil reminder that human dignity is universally grounded in our mutual respect for the rights and lives of each other. It is one thing that binds society together and makes us all better.
