A Weed Grew In Our Garden

Patricia Walker's avatar Patricia Walker

This multimedia three-dimensional piece illustrates a heart-warming children's book I wrote called "A Weed Grew in Our Garden". The book is brought to life with ten 3 foot by 3 foot shadow boxes. The installation tells the story of a weed that grows in a garden but eventually blooms into a stunning flower. The shadow boxes I have created are large enough to make the viewer feel like they are part of the story. There are hidden treasures for the viewer to discover in each box. I am working with Kent District Library to make the book available as a downloadable eBook for our community to enjoy during and after ArtPrize. This exhibit is like no other seen at any ArtPrize, appealing to both children and adults, making it a great addition to the ArtPrize experience.
