Today is our last day working on the pieces. There is not much left to do, so only some of our class is in the art room working, while the rest of the class is back in the room starting a final paper on General Dallaire’s book, Shake Hands With The Devil.
Here are pictures of us touching up the paint and attaching the mirror to the flag piece, and the heart and brain to the radio tower/body piece:
The last thing we attached was the heart, which in the words of Mrs. O’Keefe, was “perfect” for this project.
I think I can speak for everyone when I say that our History Through Film class is happy and relieved this project is over, but we are also very proud of ourselves for doing such a good job on the pieces and working together so seamlessly, and honored to be included in this exhibit. Some of us plan to attend the exhibition on April 6, and our entire class will travel to Brookdale May to hear Dallaire speak.
To conclude, here is our class with the front sides…
… and the back sides:
And shots of both sides together:

Thank you for following our progress! We hope you have enjoyed the experience as much as we have.
