RED GLASSES

Sam Noordhoff's avatar Sam Noordhoff

This sculpture is a result of the inspiration left by a 5-year-old girl from GR, who passed away in 2018. Her passing started the living legacy of The Red Glasses Movement to draw attention to the uniqueness of children born with special needs. Audrey was born with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect, but these were not things that defined her. Audrey was defined by her bright Red Glasses, and was a shining example of love, kindness, and courage in this world. As I learned more about Audrey from her family, I wanted to find a way to have children learn more about this legacy thru an interactive sculpture. This sculpture is for children to read, learn and see the uniqueness of themselves thru the symbolism of the Red Glasses. The mission of the Red Glasses movement is to put a pair of Red Glasses on every face in the world so that everyone can see through Audrey’s eyes. Simply put… it is to inspire the world to live boldly, love big, and pass it on.
