Research for Art Showcase

This survey is designed to track the wide range of upbringings that exist across generations. These answers will be featured anonymously in a handmade book alongside the show "This Is How I Remember It." The piece will be on display in late October, featuring a combination of fiber and painting works of art. Inspired by an antique photo album, the artists will be recreating memories using the found pictures to emphasize the cultural shifts over time.
