Dream Garden

The Dream Garden allowed the public to create fabric flowers from used clothing, and then write their personal dream in the flower’s center, transforming a simple craft piece into a collective statement about the dreams of residents in the community. The April 28, 2012 event had over 60 volunteers contributing to the project. Strolling through the completed garden gave viewers personal insight into the goals and desires of their own neighbors. The final project was created through the direct participation of Modesto residents, and most importantly, the artwork gave residents the opportunity to see how they could transform their community.
