Keepsake, Arts Education Resource

In this video, artist Lucy Irvine introduces you to Les Kossatz’ sculpture Sweeney's Keepsake (1987), which can be spied through the trees in the sculpture park at Heide Museum of Modern Art. This sculpture was inspired by the artist’s knowledge of his friend Sweeney playing in this area (as a child) where the sculpture now stands.

View the sculpture and reflect on personal memories and the keepsakes we collect to remind us of people, places, and times in our lives. Lucy will also show you how to make your own sculpture inspired by a special memory.
