One City, One Story 2015 “My Family Story” Art Contest

2nd place

Nicole Kwan, grade 5


Paint, glitter


This piece is striking in color.  The juxtaposition of the shackles against the flag with the glittery waters of earth represent both a dark and magical view of America.  Not everyone’s story is the same. There is a dark history there that can’t be forgotten.  This is a great piece for discussion.  What does it mean to be an American?  Is everyone free and equal?
