Hey creative friend, I’m currently working on a community
Since April is National Librar Week and this year’s theme is “Libraries = Strong Communities”, we’re embarking on a project to create a Community
The completed Community
How it Works

First, participants will go ahead and choose both color of fabrics and the markers they like. It was important to me that people have a choice in how they express themselves. Because you know me. I’m all for expressing your creativity, right? When you’re done choosing colors for fabrics and markers, then you can go ahead and either write/doodle on the fabric to express your idea of community ties.

What’s so cool about this community collage project is the social aspect. As the gallery artist for the month and facilitator of the community
So far, it has been wonderful meeting people from the community and talking to them about my artworks on exhibit, hearing the various things which make them feel connected to the community, and just having the privilege to hear their personal stories. I’m so happy that I proposed this as part of my exhibition.
The Community Collage Challenge
There’s a challenge, though.
I have to get all the completed fabric pieces from the community and piece them together for National Library Week, which starts in April. That means right after I’m done collecting the pieces, National Library Week starts. That, of course, doesn’t leave me any time to put this community
It was my challenge in planning this exhibition and it’s going to be my challenge in getting the community
My plan is to have the
But I can’t wait to get to work on it and to see how it all comes together.
