Learning Labs: Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation
Working with a group of 11- and 12-year-old girls from Colorado I Have A Dream Foundation, Abigail Kokaiguided students to construct personal quilts documenting their own lives. Together, the quilts tell the story of life in Denver from many perspectives. Abigail is a temporary resident in Denver, visiting from Savannah, Georgia. Her quilts preserve finite moments of introspection while responding to the location. The students record their personal experience of this particular time and place.
A special thanks to the volunteers!
