David Chidgey, Tree of Life Synagogue, Memorial, Hearts, Embrace the world, One heart at a time, mosaic
One Heart at a Time
8" x 8"

In memory of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh on the 3rd anniversary. This piece will become part of a larger memorial for the synagogue and community.

This piece was inspired by art created by kindergartners at the Community Day School Kindergarten. It was a series of colorful, painted hearts row on top of row. Below them was a title, “Embrace the world one heart at a time.” Their artwork and that of other students were attached to the temporary fence installed around the Tree of Life Synagogue after the tragedy.

My hope is that those who see this work will read those words and be as profoundly touched as I have been.
