UPenn and documentary

Last year, working artist Joan Myerson Shrager (College for Women, School of Education '60) led the effort with the First United Methodist Church of Germantown to create stained glass windows to be sent to a school for AIDS orphans in South Africa.

This year the group decided to donate their work to another school - this one rebuilding in a flood damaged area of New Orleans.

Per this newsworks article,
"Whether it’s bridging gaps left over from the classroom, transforming football players into glass artists, or bringing artistic suburban white women into the neighborhood to work with black students - often providing lessons for both sides of that equation, the stained glass program at FUMCOG tends to generate special moments."
After the jump, watch the video of these high school students at work during the process of creating stained glass projects.  It's pretty cool and the video actually feels like a good documentary.

Maybe there is an alum documentary filmmaker out there interested in exploring this story a bit more?




Speaking of Joan, be sure to check out the special memories and artifacts she has shared with DT from the 3 generations of her family attending Penn!
