The Color of My Dream
San Francisco Art Education Project
Working with the San Francisco Art Education Project, I conceived and directed a city wide project involving seven artists/ educators and over 750 kids from various schools. The students were presented with information about butterflies and the concep/metaphort of metamorphosis from a variety of stand points (scientific, artistic, poetic etc..) Then each student was given a butterfly template on which to record their own impression and understandings of change and hope. The resulting flock of butterflies were presented at several locations such as Zeum in San Francisco, the Art Gallery at San Francisco State University, and the Richmond Community Health Center in Richmond, California.
