October 23, 2012

Keira S., a student at Discovery Magnet School, Angel P., a student at Nichols Elementary School, Brenda Y., a student at Multi-Cultural Magnet School, and Fidel G., a student at John Winthrop School, created the following art photographs as part of their participation in Images of Home and Family: A Photographic Exhibit, one of several student projects in our education & community engagement initiative, What Happens to a Dream Deferred: Lorraine Hansberry and A Raisin in the Sun.

Students were encouraged to respond creatively to Hansberry’s play by approaching their own lives and surroundings through an artist’s lens. Take a look below and feel free to respond to these artworks by clicking the "comments" link at the end of the post. Stay tuned for additional artworks in the coming weeks!

Hello, my name is Serena. The other day, I saw A Raisin In The Sun play live. It was very fantastic. The actors were on point and seemed to know exactly what they were doing. It was a cool experience to see people act out scences from the book so well. On that note, the book was also great itself. Had a lot of figurative language (which I liked). Overall, I think A Raisin In The Sun is an AWESOME story for all ages!!!

Hello, i am an eighth grade student at John Winthrop school. I recently attended the Wesport Playhouse to see "A Raisin in the Sun" performed live. For weeks we have been reading the book "A Raisin in the Sun" and it was a very interesting book.I really enjoyed the play though. i thought that the cast did an amazing job and it was just very exciting and a new experience for me. Thank you.
