Seeds of Hope: A Project In Support of Immigrants

Seeds of Hope: A Project in Support of Immigrants

semillas de Esperanza: Un Proyecto en apoyo a los Inmigrantes

Sharing Our dreams for the Future

This is a performative 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 is represented by a small painting of a seed. As each seed is pinned to the gallery wall, the personal intention of the person represented is spoken out loud.

Over the course of the installation, hundreds of individuals and their hopes and dreams are represented in a wave like formation. One wave will represent those who have been established in the United States for one or more generations and the other represents newcomers. Each painted seed represents our nascent potential for contribution to the country in the fulfilling of our own dreams. New immigrants and those whose families have been here will be interwoven into one integrated whole.

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.
