Finding the heart of the city.

Willimantic has been given a bad reputation. In areas it is run down, and a little scary. We wanted to emphasize on the point that a lot of people love Willimantic. For some, it is the place that they call home. Our mission was to show that the beauty of the city lies within the heart of the people, who love it back. Using a metal, trash invested fence as our location, we created a beautiful heart, in honor of the people who love Willimantic. We wanted to show that you can find beauty just need to know where to look.


  1. and just for clarification, the group consists of myself, emily s, ali, and kelsey.

  2. Very Nice! A couple of more establishing shots would be cool (from further away, showing more context). A beautiful day to make your statement. And I like your actual statement as well. A declamation equal to the poetry of the gesture.
