Arts + Education at the Hoyt is a proud partner of the Oneness movement in Lawrence County. Oneness is a response to the tragedies that have recently shook our region and our nation. While acknowledging that economic, racial, spiritual, cultural and gender differences do exist, Oneness focuses on our shared humanity to prevent acts of hate, fear and desperation in the future by promoting unity, kindness, and acceptance as one people.
Join the Movement: Community Art Project
A free community event is being planned for Sunday, March 31 at the at the Scottish Rite Cathedral from 2-5 pm. In preparation for the event, the Hoyt is inviting area schools, clubs, senior centers, organizations, artists and YOU to participate in a community art project that symbolically unites us despite our differences.
Below, you will find a link to a template of a human figure representing us as we are all born – with two arms, two legs, one head and one heart.
The template should be printed onto cardstock or other heavy duty paper for durability, as the banners may be exhibited at other community events throughout the year. We are asking that each participant (regardless of age or grade) draw, color, paint, collage or otherwise decorate the figure in a way that represents who they uniquely are. You may add other materials and get as creative as you wish. When complete, the figures should be cut out and your name and age written on the back.
Return to Us
Drop off or mail your completed work to The Hoyt (124 East Leasure Ave, New Castle, 16101) before March 22.
What Happens Next
We will join all the figures hand to hand with brass fasteners to create banners that will be exhibited at the Oneness event on March 31.
