Sign My Book

Sign My Book

Artists: Lawrence Atwater & Jenn Smith
Title: Sign My Book
Materials: Acrylic and Paper on Canvas
Artist Statement: This painting has pieces from Lawrence’s notebooks. He carries notebooks everywhere and asks people to sign them. Lawrence has a hard time speaking, he has a strong speech impediment. He uses his notebooks to connect with the many friends he has in the community. When we read his notebooks together, we find messages wishing him a good weekend or thanking him for helping out. The theme this year is “My Community and Me”, which is why we wanted to incorporate his notebooks, as that is one of the ways he builds his friendships.
