The Things We Keep With Us.
The Things We Keep With Us is a collaborative work conceived by mixed media artist Ashley Roark. This project brought together twenty one community members of various ages and backgrounds to create a visual tapestry using paper and small items saved by each individual. These works, along with accompanying audio, tell the stories and meaning of these items and what has kept the participants connected to them throughout their lives. Each piece was created as a personal reflection and, through the viewing experience, seeks to create meaningful and memorable connections. This project was supported by a grant from the BCA Community Fund. www.burlingtoncityarts.org
