Take Us to the River

Take Us to the River

description

Take Us to the River is a mixed media textile piece created during a residency with the Mural Arts Tacony LAB Community Art Center in collaboration with Riverfront North Partnership. The piece was developed during a community engaged process in which I co-facilitated three art and nature walks at Lardner's Point Park, a restored native riverfront ecosystem on the Delaware River. Each walk focused on a different aspect of the ecosystem and art practice. Participants' artwork was translated into elements of the final piece and community members were invited to help stitch and appliqué both sides. The piece was installed at the Park for a culminating event on April 2, 2022.
