A group I am a member of has decided to put together an exhibit about racism in America called:
Racism: A Dialogue in Art Quilts.
Here is one of the pieces, America Fragmented, I made for the show.
I was inspired by recent events and media coverage of politics in America today.
It took many hours and many small pieces to fill up the spaces to complete the images.
Once the collage part was done I had to figure out how to quilt it.
This piece is heavely quilted, as you can see from the picture of the back above, and in this close up.
I am the curator for this exhibit and in the process of finding venues for the show across the country.
