Kid's-eye view of the Gates
Fourth grade students at Dalton have created their own Gates memory project. After learning about Christo and Jeanne-Claude's work, and visiting the Gates through different stages of their installation, students created journal entries, poems, and artworks. These reflections were synthesized in a "culminating project," a work of art that interpretated the Gates experience. The projects are marvelous. Above, left is a picture by Isabelle. Above right is Gabriel's collage which incorporates a poem.
