Title
The Blue Marbles Project: Wallace J. Nichols (2010)
Alt-Text
Seated in the art gallery, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols holds up one blue marble as he explains The Blue Marbles Project.
Description
Dr. Wallace J. Nichols gave everyone one blue marble and shared the simple instructions for playing the "blue game." 

The marble has to be blue (any shade, and preferably made of recycled glass). When you get one, you should think of someone that you would like to give the marble to as a token of gratitude (whenever and wherever you like). Share your story with the world (however you like). 

I received my Blue Marble and learned about The Blue Marbles Project on July 29, 2010 when I went to hear J talk about his first-hand look at the oil spill in the Gulf at the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. 

Earlier in the year, my school served as collection center for Mel Chin's Fundred Project, a national collaborative art project, designed to allow the nation’s children to be a part of the solution to eliminate the devastating effects of lead-contaminated soil in New Orleans and other cities. On February 17, 2010, an armored truck drove from New Orleans to Rooftop Alternative School in San Francisco to pick up a bank box filled with artistic currency created by schoolchildren.
