Puzzled Eyes

Best in Show Quotation

by: Dan McGibbon, South Cle Elum, Washington

Society tells us how to "act", "exist" and "be". We must LEARN for ourselves how to "interact", "coexist" and "become."

quote by: Gabrielle H., 11th Grade, Co-Existence Club Officer, Riverview High School - Sarasota, Florida
teacher: Dena Sturm

Artist Statement

Thinking of a puzzle, I saw faces in the blank pieces. By adding eyes and different colors, each piece looked similar, yet different. Like those puzzle pieces, we are all different and unique, yet similar. When we fit together we can create a big, bright and beautiful picture of the world. Don’t look at the world with puzzled eyes, see through the lies and you will see, the world would not be without you and me.
