Letter to the Mayor

Dear Mayor Lauren Poe

My name is Brodrick Johnson . I’m a 6th grade student at P.K. Yonge, and I am designing a work of installation art to represent the friendship between Gainesville and Qalqilya. 

My name is Brodrick Johnson . I’m a 6th grade student at P.K. Yonge, and I am designing a work of installation art to represent the friendship between Gainesville and Qalqilya. 

Ideally, the sculpture would be installed prominently in Gainesville and in Qalqliya. The Sister Cities Pavilion in front of City Hall or TB baseball fields would be perfect locations. Please see the attached visualizations.

I hope my artwork will inspire citizens of Gainesville to learn about Qalyliya and Kurdistan. I hope that it will be a physical reminder of our friends in other countries. When someone looks at it, I hope they think about how big the world is, and how we have friends on the other side of the world that want to meet us and share their culture with us. It will bring our cities closer together, it will celebrate our friendship, and it will make the world at once more wondrous and more accessible to the people of Qalqliya and Gainesville.

Thank you for your consideration,

Brodrick Johnson
