Willie Jordan The Passage North installation update

Willie Jordan in his installationSince it opened in August 2011 at the Erie Art Museum, the installation has changed  and evolved with the seasons.  Willie has given the figures scarves and sweaters for the winter cold, puts change in their pockets so they are not penniless, and for example, has added dried flowers and berries as a new season might provide. He usually stops by for a few visits every week, and has become a sort of gardener to his ever changing and growing installation.  Recently, he’s added shelves that display symbolic artifacts from the  journey to freedom.
