CITY/TOWN EVENTS

ALL PEOPLE'S DAY Museum Exhibit In Atlantic City At The

 

Some of the ALL PEOPLE'S DAY art projects made by the Atlantic City 6th, 7th & 8th Grade Students as seen from the outside of the Atlantic City Art Center.

A student showed the figure her team produced. The same figure was seen from the window of the Atlantic City Art Center above.


The SYMBOL Project

Each team of students created a life size painting of a figure, wearing the traditional costume of the country they used in their school celebration skit. The painted figures crossed their hearts with their arms, and were linked together as they held hands, expressing connections between the cultures.

The figures led the museum viewer to the Display Case. It held information about the projects and photographs of the students who created the three ALL PEOPLE'S DAY traditions.


The CRAFT DOUGH PEOPLE Project

Each team of students made five faces of different colors, all created from the same plain craft dough. This illustrated that we are all made from the same ingredients, flesh and blood. Therefore we should all be treated with equal respect.

Each relief sculpture was a unique expression of a face used in their original skits at each school celebration. The faces had been worn on their chests to identify their character's color.


The PEACE CRANE Project

Since ALL PEOPLE'S DAY encourages us to care about one another, we naturally want peace between the people of the world. Thus, students folded Peace Cranes, each created from a single piece of Origami paper.

The display case showed cranes of different sizes created by the students. The story of a girl named Sadako inspired the use of these Japanese Origami cranes. A Japanese legend of receiving a wish for creating 1,000 cranes was told to students in a poignant tale about this brave child's hope for peace among nations. The picture of Sadako holding a huge peace crane above her head is a photo of an actual statue in Hiroshima's Peace Park. Every year people from all over the planet send Peace Cranes to be hung from her statue hoping for peace in the world.
