The New Colossus

Satisfactory Essays

I chose to create a "Thanks for Donating" piece. For my piece, I chose to use a t-shirt because people could raise additional awareness. On the front of the t-shirt, I chose to illustrate the item they were donating their money towards. The angle of New Colossus showed strength and leadership. On the back of the t-shirt, I chose six lines from the sonnet "The New Colossus" by Emms Lazarus. These six lines really stood out to me: they gave me a sense of hope, security, and worth. I made certain words bold such as welcome, free, lift, golden, and mighty in order to show others what the "New Colossus" symbolizes for in the United States.
