In the early morning hours of March 6, 2020 ArtsWestchester staff, Amanda Browder and a committed group of volunteers from around the county came together to begin creating Metropolis Sunrise. We were lucky to have WNBC-TV early morning news anchor Katherine Craeg here to report about this important community project. Little did we know how much the world would change just a few days later. Katherine Craeg passed away unexpectedly on February 10, 2021 unable to see our final creation.
