The Community Quilt Project
Since we have been in quarantine due to the pandemic of Covid 19, all the teaching to the GettLove community has stopped. I thought of a way to get them working on an individual art project that would also be inclusive to a connecting them to their community. My Idea is the quilt. Individual pieces made by the clients then I would sew them together into a large quilt.
The Gettlove Clients are difficult to inspire if you are not there working one on one. Some may do it but it is a crap shoot. I thought the idea should be offered to others in the community and that's when it started to grow and take off.
With the support of #SoLA Gallery, we are spreading the word and getting amazing work from artists all over Los Angeles. We plan to exhibit the work and then have an auction where all the money will go to a homeless organization. I am feeling good about this and find that it is healing too. More to come.
