Seneca artist Marie Watt, whose work is featured in an upcoming exhibition at the Block Museum, makes many of her pieces with community participation, notably in “sewing circles”. These events bring people together in making and conversation. Join us to meet the artist, connect with neighbors, add to a new collaborative work of art, and take part in conversations around the theme of equity. No sewing experience is required and all ages are welcome. Come lend your hands and your voice to the exchange.
