The W’s Unity Project
October 27 - October 28
Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community are invited to participate in The W’s Unity Project, an interactive public art project, designed to raise “consciousness about the labels we give ourselves and others.” The W’s Unity Project is inspired by Nancy Belmont’s UNITY project. During The W’s Unity project, 32 posts will stand in a circle near Bryan Green Gazebo, all but one representing a different social role or identity, personal trait, or worldview. The 32nd pole will be a blank slate, and participants will be able to write in an additional identifier they feel is important to their sense of self. Each person will select the poles that represent the various aspects of their identity and will string blue yarn from one to the other, creating a crisscrossing pattern.
The event will take place each day at the Bryan Green Gazebo from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; 5-6 p.m.
