In this new community art project, a multi-paneled “quilted” mosaic will be constructed and attached to the south-facing wall exterior of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park. Images will be artistic interpretations of traditional textile pattern from cultural communities that use the park and built by community members at three locations, MLK Park, Southwest Senior Center, and Sabathani. This project is co-led and organized by KFNA and Southwest Senior Center/VOA; the project artist is Sharra Frank who has extensive experience working with both children and seniors, as well as public art installations. The primary goal of the Mosaic Quilting Project is to demonstrate, through visual art, the diversity of cultures in our community and celebrate their shared public space at Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park. To learn more about the project and additional workshop dates visit here.
The 1st Mosaic Quilting Workshops will be held on Sat. Oct 27, 10 AM, SW Senior Center
All ages are welcome; those under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult. RSVP’s appreciated!
