Create a fantastical wish container to hold your hopes for the new fall season and the upcoming Jewish New Year. Use wire, colorful tape, beads, paper, and drawing materials to transform a container. Draw inspiration from expressive forms in the artwork Masinekele Let us Give by South African artist Jeremiah Maloi—a sculptural object which focuses on the concept of tzedakah, or charity.
