A Year with Children 2017

Now in its 46th year, guggenheim’s learning through art program held its annual exhibition “a year with children 2017”, showcasing selected projects by student artists from grades two through six.

One of the exhibition’s highlights includes a project made by students from P.S. 42 Benjamin Altman school, a school located in Manhattan’s Chinatown. Named “Four-sided Me”, the project encourages students to delve into history from past to present by imagining their personal role in the future. Student artists created four-sided wooden sculptures incorporating aspects of their personal identity including their present self, future self, animal spirit, and either a historical figure or present-day influencer.

Madison Sang, the student representative of p.s 42 manhattan shared how she presented these aspects through her piece. Sinovision journal reporters Jane Stone and Nia Chen bring you the story.
