Ring-Around-The-Rosy


Ring-Around-The-Rosy, mixed media assemblage

Another (slightly satirical) narrative assemblage depicting the popular children's rhyme, "Ring-Around-The-Rosy". We all played this game as a child and now play it with our kids (it's a fav of Lizzie's), but it seems every one of us has been taught a slightly different version. I know the chant I taught Lizzie is slightly different than the one Patrick remembers. And...it looks as if this old rhyme's origins are debated to this day. Whether or not it is a morbid reminder of those who suffered through the Bubonic Plague in the 14th century or just a lighthearted sing-song of youth it will always remain a popular reverie of childhood memories.
