"Venice, the floating city of art and culture that has inspired humanity for centuries, is threatened by climate change and time decay and is in need of the support of our generation and future ones.
As the young grow in hunger for knowledge and action, so does their ability to spread ideas and inspire us all. The hands of a child, representing our present and future, supporting life and culture, hold the historic palazzo of Ca' Sagredo in Venice -- the birthplace of my mother and my wife, a city to which I feel a deep connection, love and gratitude.
Sitting one day on Ca' Sagredo's terrace, viewing the scene of the Grand Canal and reflecting on art, history, and our responsibilities, I was inspired by the vision of support rising from the waters, greeting and protecting us all.
The realization of this artwork is a fulfillment of a dream and a hope that we all share in our hearts." - Lorenzo Quinn
