Artist: Kelly Canby
Place of Origin: WA
When bricks start to go missing from the walls around the small town of Littlelight, walls built to protect the people from all that is different and unusual, the mayor whips his citizens into a frenzy of aggravation. But when the townspeople find the thief and her motive, they discover perhaps it is the mayor who is the problem. Littlelight is a thought-provoking tale of diversity, tolerance and acceptance.
After listening to the story, Kelly and guests will discuss what makes each of us unique before heading to the craft table where you will create self-portraits. These self-portraits will then be used to produce a communal piece of art that celebrates our uniqueness.
