Well this is cool…a little explanation please?
It’s an art exhibit by two Soviet-born, NYC-based artists. There’s one in Chicago right now, through October 19, if you want to go see it! Here’s the mission statement of the artwork:
‘It is a conceptual piece that is meant to reflect how divergent cultures interpret tolerance and how these interpretations overlap. The ship’s sails are stitched together from paintings by hundreds of local schoolchildren from different ethnic and social backgrounds, and will convey a message of tolerance and hope. By participating in the creation of this ship children will learn about respecting different cultures and ideas while appreciating how they differ from their own. In short, through this creative process, they will both demonstrate and gain a vibrant lesson in tolerance.’ from https://shipoftolerance.org
Thank you! I wish Chicago could be in the cards for us in that timeframe…!
