The Village Project

An installation by artists Denise Minnerly and Don Bracken that addresses the various perceptions and understandings of what a house means to all people. Hundreds of participants from the Waterbury community have worked with the artists over the last year to explore ideas around home, community, and identity. Using clay they each created their sculpture of ‘home’ which will be installed at the museum under a large, collaboratively-constructed vine sculpture representing our bonds with community, home, and nature. The collaborative endeavor illustrates both community and individual identity when displayed as one village.
