Resolution sculptures are created by artists to help us publicly declare our hopes, dreams, and promises to ourselves for the New Year. Some are simple and perhaps abstract, like a wire strung with Christmas lights. Others take the shape of animals, or even a person – like State College’s Burning Man.
Writing a resolution and placing it next to resolutions already made by friends and neighbors helps all of us know that despite our differences, we’re remarkably similar. We may not look the same, dress the same, or eat the same foods, but resolutions to make the New Year better than the passing year are things we all share in common.
