Ship of Tolerance Project Miami Children’s Museum
ARTLOG – November 30, 2011
The brainchild of Russian-born Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, the Ship of Tolerance Project will enlist the Miami Children’s Museum to coordinate all participating children and their artwork that will be used on the project and to provide a forum for discussion of the theme of tolerance. Local children between the ages of 6 and 13 will learn about the project and will design and create their artwork contributions. At MCM, after discussing this Ship of Tolerance theme as a group, children have been painting their own interpretation of Tolerance onto a large piece of canvas of uniform size. Approximately 150 of these canvas paintings will be later hoisted onto the mast of the ship, which will be constructed on site at Art Miami 2011 where it will be available for public viewing.
Upon the completion of Art Miami 2011, the Ship of Tolerance is expected to move to the Miami Children’s Museum where it will be on exhibit until the end of January 2012.
