gift to forever
move your world
Gift to Forever asked children and their families to imagine a contribution they could give to the future and to represent that gift using homemade clay. Nearly 500 people made offerings, which were gathered on a central table - a temporary "new world." As this world came together, participants saw their small gesture grow - a lone bird, perhaps, surrounded suddenly by a healthy flock - into a powerful vision for our shared future.
Works Progress and project partners conceived Gift to Forever for the Walker Art Center's Free First Saturday Family Program.
