What is In Your Heart?

What Is In Your Heart?

This was such a fun project, especially coming right off of Valentines Day! An artist friend of ours, Petra Eiko, was involved in creating a wonderful art exhibit called “What is In Your Heart” that is currently on exhibit in Santa Monica. Visitors to the shop/gallery were asked to answer this question via drawing and writing, and to ‘post’ their answers in the gallery space.

I helped filmed the opening reception of this project for Petra, and was so inspired by what I saw that I decided to have our Living Histories students participate as well. Without much prompting beyond a basic explanation, they were asked to answer the question of ‘what is in your heart?’; their answers, as you can see below, are quite insightful, touching, and funny.

The project, as a side note, was also a great teaching tool for the difference between ‘literal’ and ‘figurative’ and we’ll be using it as an introduction to our poetry writing this week.
