[Nichols Alava, Arianna] Fundación Tinguacó Installation Art

Written Concept

A sculpture of two children siting at a table making a bracelet. one of the children already has a bracelet and they are making a bracelet for the other. The bracelets represent friendship. I want people who see it to wonder and learn about our sister school.  

I want the children to be about 3.5 ft tall, and I want everything in the sculpture to be life sized. I want it to be made out to metal 

The primary location would be behind the new building so the secondary students could see it and learn about it, a secondary location would be one of the open areas after the demolition.   

Letter to the school head

Dear Dr. Lynda Hayes,

My name is Arianna Nichols Alava. I’m a 8th grade student at P.K. Yonge, and I am designing a work of installation art to represent the friendship between PKY and Tinguaco. 

A sculpture of two children siting at a table making a bracelet. one of the children already has a bracelet and they are making a bracelet for the other. The bracelets represent friendship. I want people who see it to wonder and learn about our sister school.  

I want the children to be about 3.5 ft tall, and I want everything in the sculpture to be life sized. I want it to be made out to metal 

The primary location would be behind the new building so the secondary students could see it and learn about it, a secondary location would be one of the open areas after the demolition.   

Ideally, the sculpture would be installed prominently in pky and in Tinguaco. The Sister Cities Pavilion in front of City Hall or Bo Diddley plaza would be perfect locations. Please see the attached visualizations.

I hope my artwork will inspire citizens of pky to learn about Tinguaco . 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 Tinguaco and pky.

Thank you for your consideration,

Arianna Nichols Alava
