12 ArtLab interns were selected through an application process for the spring ArtLab II program. Their internships culminated with a special project called: “Freedom to be…heard.” Interns researched current hot topics related to issues of Freedom and engaged students within their own schools and communities to create 6×8 inch cards in mixed-media. Each card reflected an interpretation of personal or global freedom issues and participants ranged in age from 5-20 years of age. In all, 658 cards were exhibited on the walls of PlatteForum for the opening celebration on May 25, 2006. Additionally, interns armed with video-cameras hit the streets of Denver to interview random people on what Freedom meant to them. The resulting footage was edited into a diverse collection of opinions and projected at the opening event.
