Let Them Laugh, 2023

SKU: 1034

Artist: Carrie Leigh Dickey


About the Artwork: 

“Spirits all around,

Charms of earth, so near—

Tend the sleeping buds

Buried safely here,

Thaw the frozen ground,

Let the spring break through.

With spirits standing guard

Life will come…anew.”


“That is the Magic. Being alive is the Magic—being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me—the Magic is in me.”


This artwork is accompanied by text from “The Secret Garden” a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett and text from the musical “The Secret Garden” with book and lyrics by Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon. May these thoughts be entry points into the artwork.
