Wings of Witness Workshop
For Youth & Families
Sunday, November 9th
2 – 4 pm
1701 Main Street, Peekskill, NY
Join us for a very special hands-on workshop for youth and families with artist, Jeffrey Schrier.
The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY is exhibiting Jeffrey Schrier’s powerful three-dimensional work, Unfinished Flight, a new rendition of his well-known Wings of Witness sculpture series that has toured the USA.
Wings of Witness is a massive sculpture assembled in collaboration with over 60,000 participants from all over the world. More than eleven million soda can tabs, numerically recalling lives destroyed by hate, intolerance and apathy, are woven together to form a memorial assemblage honoring the Pavel Friedmann Holocaust era poem, The Butterfly.
This workshop will explore the use of art as a powerful vehicle to convey important historical and social issues and the importance of ethical consciousness. Participants will also contribute to the ongoing creation of the sculpture through hands-on instruction from the artist.
