JFG's Building Resilience pop up museum stems from the Community 1,000 Cranes project that invited everyone to create an origami crane in hopes to reach a total of 1,000 cranes together to promote recovery, solidarity, and resilience during the initial stay at home orders that began in March, 2020.

Christopher Polentz: The Promised Land

Dec 7, 2020 - Feb 14, 2021

Inspired by the golden age of the traveling carnival (1870-1930), with its social outcasts of carny folk, sideshow freaks-and-geeks, I have endeavored to re-represent that unwanted slice of society through the innocence of children.

These children represent vulnerability, the inherent need to be wanted and loved without a thought as to “why?”

I would like my images to nurture compassion for the differences within us all. Our need for acceptability and fitting in. But most of all the need to be valued and loved. My images of children are faultless individuals; possessing obvious imperfections and undesirable qualities, social outcasts, different, through no fault of their own, but nonetheless unwanted and made to feel unnecessary.
