710 N. 8th St., Sheboygan, WI 53081
During spring 2018, Saleme and Cazorla visited Sheboygan. During this research visit, they engaged the community through a series of bilingual (Spanish and English), free workshops and artist lectures. They met a part of the Sheboygan community, including the Latinx, and fell in love with the city and its community.They perceived the extraordinary energy that the city has. They decided to celebrate Sheboygan’s community by revealing its warmth, integration, and respect. Ultimately, the project creates a unique portrait of Sheboygan with a message of hope and new beginnings for all.They made a social media call to collect images of historic buildings of significance that make Sheboygan a unique city. Many of these photographs from the community were included in the final piece, Threading a Dream.
