Stone in Love: Walking with Our Ancestors

One World Arts |

In this 90-minute engagement, artist Jane Gabrielle will share her interest in history and ancestor connection with your neighborhood. Roanoke’s ancestors reside in cemeteries in every part of our city. How often do we consider them? What did they dream about? How are we the living embodiment of those dreams? Jane will lead a cemetery visit, and participants will make grave rubbings. The group will embellish the rubbings with color and then display them in a community space.

Participants: Six to 29 participants
Ages: All
Value: $150.00
Requirements: Please provide access to a cemetery close to the neighborhood, chairs for those who may not be able to stand for long periods, and a community space to display the rubbings.
