Overall Project Description:
The Art In The Everyday Community Quilt Project - Is a community driven social engagement public art project. Art is utilized as the foundation. The facilitating artist fosters individual creative thinking while connecting participants into a unique traveling sculpture to create community. Together the completed individual pieces are brought into the quilt form. The project interprets the historical use of quilts as a documentary & genealogical means to preserve familial memories. Through its unified form, the project showcases the community created by the participants. The project celebrates & records the individual pieces contributed, now over 800. A celebration of each person, their story, interests & their response to the everyday is portrayed by their individual contribution. The project continues to grow & connect participants, as well as viewers as it travels. Participants are invited to follow & interact with the project, cite their participation all while celebrating everyday objects, interests & thoughts of each participant.

Cost:
Small donations to assist the project grow and travel are relished but not required. $3-$10 per participation piece is most appreciated.
