Yes Yonkers! Pop-Up Creation Station

Artists Evan Bishop and Katori Walker, supported by a Yonkers Arts Initiative Grant from ArtsWestchester, continue to bring their Yes Yonkers! community quilt project to the City of Yonkers. The project calls for Yonkers residents and visitors to create 10×10 canvas swatches that express, through artwork or words, their feelings about the City.

Join the artists at a “Pop-Up Creation Station” on Saturday, October 20 at Ridge Hill Shopping Center’s Harvest Fest on the Hill to make your own swatch! Says Bishop: “I value the historic use of quilts as a tool that guides and informs the viewer… this [Yes Yonkers!] quilt is encouraging participants to tell their story.”
