Thomas Jefferson High School Brings Unity Through Public Art Display

Oct. 6, 2016
 

On Thursday, Oct. 6, compelled by the notion that they were more connected than divided, Thomas Jefferson High School students and educators joined together with Denver Public Schools (DPS) leaders to take part in The UNITY project, a nationwide public interactive art exhibit that shows individuals are each unique but connected by a common thread.

Anne Rowe, DPS board president, and Superintendent Tom Boasberg took part in the community experience hosted at Thomas Jefferson HS, where participants strung threads of yarn between posts labeled with phrases they identified with. These identifiers included, “I’m a student,” “I don’t have a home” and “I’m a survivor.”

The final canopy that was created is now on display on campus, and demonstrates how everyone is unique but interconnected.
