Seeds of Hope: A Project In Support of Immigrants

Seeds of Hope: A Project Celebrating Our Dreams & Wishes

semillas de Esperanza: Un Proyecto Que Celebra Nuestros Seunos Y Deseos

Sharing Our dreams for the Future

Seeds of Hope An Interactive Art Installation Celebrating Immigrants from Michele Théberge on Vimeo.

This is a community based art installation in which the wishes, hope, dreams and aspirations of immigrants and Americans of the past and present are united and amplified in a secular prayer action. Each person’s wish is represented by a small painting of a seed. As each seed is pinned to the gallery wall, the personal intention of that person  is spoken out loud.

Over the course of the installation, hundreds of individuals and their hopes and dreams are represented in waves wrapping the gallery walls. Each painted seed represents our nascent potential for contribution to the country in the fulfilling of our own dreams.

We are interested in YOUR personal dreams and hopes. If you could have someone pray for your dreams or wishes to come true what would your most simple request be? All responses will be kept anonymous, unless you share a name.
