Moment in Time Exhibit – 2019
Three schools, three blocks away. Separated by perplexing barriers. Created in three diverse environments, this art weaves a thread through students’ experiences. How are we the same? What do we all hold dear? What do we all believe in? At the same time it highlights how diverse and incongruent each child and school’s worlds really are.
Students wrote poetry about their experience of this neighborhood and their hopes for the future with poet & artist Kwabena Foli
Actor and director Andrew White lead the students in thinking through their experiences through a tableau – still images made by actors to represent a scene.
Students brainstormed the final tableaux and these were photographed by Cecil McDonald. Each tableau responded to these ideas:
Show us the LOVE in your life
Show us the HATE in your life
Show us the POWER in your life
Show us the JOY in your life
Show us the PAIN in your life
Show us the DANCE in your life
Show us the FUTURE in your life
Show us the FEAR in your life
