This winter, community members from Northwestern, Evanston, and beyond joined together with artist Marie Watt to lend their hands to sewing circles, embroidering words of equity, maternity, and empowerment. These stitches and conversations have become part of a new work for the exhibition “If You Remember, I’ll Remember.” Drop in for the unveiling of this project and to speak with Watt about her community-based and participatory practice.
