Welcome to Noahland | GHIA
September 10 @ 6:00 pmFree
Date: September 10, 2021 | Time: 6pm | Location: Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art 1st Floor
“Welcome to Noahland” is a showcase of abstract art by a local young artist, who is also a GHIA alum. The show is about finding effort and ease. It’s about creating something that is interpreted by each viewer. The show highlights that different doesn’t mean less. Many of the pieces displayed were created while at GHIA summer camp, which is where Noahland was born. As Noah and the students showed off their work, one piece, the flag, was captivating and transforming. The class was ethnically diverse and the children wanted to create the flag that represented their heritage. As they proudly showed off their work, the children shared “This is China. This is Israel. This is the United States.” I got to Noah’s and said “This must be Noah’s.” And a student clamoured, “It’s NOAHLAND!”
Noahland is a place where differences and uniqueness are appreciated and celebrated. It’s a place where others learn that we are all different but the same and that different doesn’t mean less.
