Under the direction of Nashoba Brooks School employees, Lisa Stanley, art teacher, and, Kendra Aber-Ferri, library director and transliteracy integration specialist, Grade 8 students picked historic events that occurred during their lifetime, researched the event, and presented the rationale behind why the event needed to be memorialized

“This was an opportunity for our students to conduct research around real-world events, create a thesis, and think a bit deeper about how art is both impacted by and impacts our world,” said Kendra Aber-Ferri.

For this project, students had to think like architects and designers. The result: three-dimensional monuments that memorialize events of our time, especially ones that have closely resonated and impacted students today—the Flint water crisis; natural disasters such as Hurricanes Katrina and Maria; Newtown School shootings; and a monument honoring former President Barack Obama.
