Thank you to everyone who attended our presentation at the March 12th NEWNC meeting tonight! We appreciate all of your feedback and your great ideas.
We are especially grateful for the feedback on the Suitcase sculpture and the idea that the ‘luggage labels’ should focus on places in Italy rather than places around the world. We have taken this into consideration and yes, there will be mainly Italian labels on the suitcase, and they will be the most prominent.
In appreciation for the many waves of immigration that have played a part in the North End’s history over the centuries, we will include some representative labels from earlier inhabitants.
Since this sculpture will be created in collaboration with local school children, we will also allow for some flexibility in choosing labels, letting them decide which countries or groups they think should be represented.
