From the Speed Art Museum website:
“How can an old memory assist in creating a new one? That is the question explored in Our Life, Our Stories, an exhibition about each artist’s relationship to photographs from their life. The artists were asked to select images that reminded them of home, their upbringing, or their neighborhoods. These pieces of art show the emotion connected to their stories through color, shape, subject matter, and texture.”
This program is part of the Speed Art Museum’s Community Connections program which aims at giving platform to marginalized voices through an art-making series. Through innovative arts and cultural experiences, Community Connections will bring contemporary art from diverse experiences into the Speed Art Museum through community collaborations.
This program is also part of the Seeding Vitality Arts in Museums Initiative developed, funded and managed by Aroha Philanthropies with technical assistance provided by Lifetime Arts.
