YES YONKERS! Community Quilt Project
Artists Evan Bishop and Katori Walker devised the idea for this art project when they considered the history of quilt making and its collaborative process. Awarded a 2018 Yonkers Arts Initiative Individual Artist grant by ArtsWestchester, these panels will be stitched together to create the largest piece of art in Yonkers history.
This all-inclusive community art project was designed to celebrate Yonkers, family, life, and unity. Each participant was encouraged to create art, write a message, or share positive words on a 10-inch square canvas swatch. No art-making experience was required. Join us at the unveiling and fashion show May 18th.
