The Stories of Childhood project is part of the World and Eye outreach program, Telling Tales, in which senior adults collaborate with artists of all ages to create story-based art exhibits.
Stories of Childhood is an intergenerational collaboration between:
In this project, the storytellers recorded true, personal stories about their own childhoods. Some of the recordings were played to a group of children (aged 7-12) who made shadow puppets to accompany the stories, and to a group of local artists who translated the stories into artwork.
The art, puppets, and stories will be exhibited at the World & Eye Arts Center during the FAT Village Art Walks on July 29th and August 26th. from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Featuring work by:
Jensin Holmgren, Whitney Leon, Lily Mazurek, Jill Morris, Meghan Morris, Alexandra Neira, Anabel Peicher, Missy Pierce, Liliana Rivera, Guillermo Santiago, Judith Schwab, Sarah Walker, and Jen Walls.
