A community-based art project that seeks to connect communities through pulling up a chair and sharing stories of positivity about Strong Women of Toledo.
This story is told by a person who looks up to her grandma more than any other person. Hearing Aly tell so many special and unforgettable things about her grandma was compelling for me. Not only because her grandma was so interesting, but because everything she was sharing about her grandma was a memory. As Aly threw up these memories of her grandma, you could feel the emotional connection she still has with who she remembers her grandma to be.
As an artist, I chose to illustrate that idea - moving thoughts coming together to form a visual of what a memory could look like.
