#KidsToday--Middle School Arts Project
We specifically encouraged students to keep the faces free of any features to reflect the universality of these struggles and experiences. We recognize this gives the dolls a bit of an unfinished look, which is fitting, since many, if not all of these battles are still being fought today. This work is unfinished.
Look for the following elements in every generation: A body dressed in era-appropriate garb, heads filled with slang from the time, hearts filled with causes that matter to the generation, and a body surrounded by counter-forces working against and propelling change. We need young voices, as they are often our greatest voice of reason.
As you see throughout the pictures, we hope you recognize that within the dissonance lies the truth-- there’s more that unites us than divides us.
