DESCRIPTION

NURTUREart presents Welcome! an installation of artworks by 46 third grade students from P.S. 147 made in collaboration with artist Amy Ritter.

The third grade students have cataloged their lives and the world around them by taking on the roles of cartographer, folklorist, architect, and explorer. Informed by their social studies curriculum, students question the differences between the needs and wants in our community. How can we begin to reimagine our everyday spaces around us and propose creative solutions to these needs?

The exhibition includes over 30 sculptures, created both individually and collaboratively, in response to questions about needs and wants in the students’ community. Assembled with cardboard, wood, other found materials, and painted largely monochromatically, the sculptures are small-scale models of what the community might look like if these third grade students were in charge.
