Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

Mary MacDonald -- artist, arts advocate, arts writer, and curator -- was only in her 30s when she succumbed to cancer this summer, yet the impact she had on the thriving arts sector in St. John's was profound. So much so, the community felt her loss more deeply than most. This article tries to explain why, by exploring her character and her message about art's fundamental value, purpose, and necessity in forming a civil and enlightened society.
