Remembrance

Spark visits with three women who use their art to explore questions of history, time and memory. Driven by a need to explore family memories and the Chinese American experience, South Bay artist Flo Oy Wong has embarked on a creative path in her provocative artworks that record the human impact of violence and racism in America. From bleak hospital wards to gray government buildings, mixed-media artist Ann Chamberlain works wonders transforming intimidating public spaces into welcoming, inspirational environments to evoke personal stories and recollections of the past. After the death of her young son, sculptor Virginia Harrison has been working with others who have experienced personal loss to create unique memorial markers, plaques and urns.
