What is Diversity?

by: 30 Pre-Kindergarten Students, Alta Vista Elementary School - Sarasota, Florida
teacher: Anita Wexler (Project Coordinator)

The Great ones like Dr. King, Einstein, Mother Theresa, Kennedy and Gandhi witnessed much man-made misery and still chose to resonate PEACE. They are truly our greatest teachers, inspiring us to live in the territory of our hearts.

Artist Statement

Every day when I enter my classroom, I see thirty smiling faces representing an array of cultures. Each of these faces represents one of my pre-kindergarten students. The portraits express their innocence, diversity, humor and beauty.
