Taking inspiration from the MMFA’s Pieces of History exhibition that places visitors inside spaces that would have been found in homes during the 19th-century students are asked to explore the definition of Home.
As we find in the larger Museum exhibition, Home can be a room, a space dedicated to a family, or routine like a kitchen or dining room but it can also be a feeling of belonging or a safe space. Works created by students can be simple recreations of their own homes, or the house of their dreams or something more complex and answer the question of where do I feel most at home and why? The idea of Home can even be a person or a pet. This is a great opportunity for student artists to thoughtfully create a work of art that conveys what Home means to them.
