MLK Day 2020: Weaving Together a Beloved Community
January 20, 12-4 PM
Aligning with our current exhibition, Painted Threads, which focuses on weaving in contemporary art, “Weaving Together a Beloved Community” is a community project that will be undertaken on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 20. The project will be a physical manifestation of the metaphor for the connectivity of communities. It will explore how they are woven together, how the experiences of the individual impacts the whole, and how, as a group, we can lock hands and entwine threads of support in dedication to creating a beloved community. Both children and adults are invited to create artwork or write text on thick paper strips that will be woven into yarn-based wall hangings that will be hung in Summit after the event as a symbol of Dr. King’s message of equality, inclusivity, social justice, and love. Materials will be provided and all are invited to view the exhibitions on display while visiting the Art Center. This event is free and open to the public. Click here to reserve your spot.
