Poetry & tableaux contemplating neighborhoods
and the threads that connect us
Art on Sedgwick with artists Kwabena Foli, Cecil McDonald Jr., and Andrew White
with three local elementary schools
With Kwabena Foli, Andrew White, and students from Catherine Cook, Franklin Fine Arts Center, and Manierre Elementary School
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.
