Songs of Myself Animation
By Mural Arts Philadelphia

This is a one time only projection at the Whitman Library. This animation will focus on stanzas from Walt Whitman's poem "Song of Myself". The short video will include voices from immigrant youth exploring the concept of multitudes and diversity through the use of language. Hand drawn images, fonts, and other visuals sourced from the youth will be collaged together in the video by artist, Shira Walinsky and poet, Ujjwala Maharjan.


The program will include a poetry reading by students from Furness High School.
