We're excited to bring you the inaugural Penguin Post. Join us each month for content that is thoughtful, happy, inspiring and helpful, all through the 21c lens.
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.
A Message from 21c COO Sarah Robbins:
A warm welcome to all of you.
Recently, it was heartbreaking to close all nine 21c Museum Hotels. The initial impact comes fast and furious: we immediately began to miss our guests, our team, the art, and the fantastic food and tasty beverages we were used to surrounding us daily.
Candidly, we all felt low for several days, just as I am sure you have at some point.
Our 21c team is made up of people who love making lemonade (lavender with a splash of vodka, preferably) out of lemons.
As the famous quote captures so perfectly, ‘adversity is a terrible thing to waste.’ Thus, our actions shifted to remaining connected with each other – whenever, and in whatever form that needs to be. We are here.
We look forward to re-opening as soon as it is safe to do so, and we cannot wait for the day when we are able to welcome you and your clients back into our spaces.
Thank you for being part of the 21c community. For sharing your moments, big and small with us, and for reminding us of the strength of the human connection.
In the meantime, we will be in touch with updates (and hopefully, uplifts) through newsletters, our social media channels and website to keep you informed, connected and supported through these trying times.
