Ms. Hanna Leatherman, a former Simmons student, worked with our 4th grade to create 100 clothespin dolls. These dolls are part of the 1000 Dolls project lead by Transylvania University’s Community Engagement Through the Arts class. The dolls will be placed outside around Lexington’s North Limestone area to be found by the community. The goal is to bring people together in making the dolls and finding the dolls.
More information about the Community Engagement Through the Arts program is available at: http://communityengagements.blogspot.com/.
The dolls wil be exhibited in a gallery at the Kentucky Theatre from April 4th-9th. The grand opening of the exhibit will be at 7:00 pm on April 4th. The opening will be held with potluck style food and local bands playing throughout the evening. We hope to see you there!
