ACTION: MARK YOUR IMMIGRATION WITH A SEED
Seeds of Hope is a performative installation work by artist Michele Theberge in which the wishes or aspirations of immigrants are amplified in a secular prayer action. Each immigrant is represented by a small painting of a seed. As each seed is pinned to the gallery wall, their personal intention is spoken out loud. Over the course of the installation, hundreds of individuals and their reasons for coming to the U.S. are represented in a wave like formation. Each painted seed represents one American immigrant, past or present, and his or her nascent potential for contribution to the country. Past and contemporary immigrants will be interwoven into one integrated whole. See more here.
