Come spring, rich colors will sweep along the brick façade of ArtsWestchester’s nine-story neoclassical building in White Plains. A quilt-like sculpture, designed from intermingling fabrics of varying patterns and textures, will outfit Mamaroneck Avenue in a monumental piece of public artwork. The sculpture, to be draped from the top of the historic landmark building, will be the result of a creative process months in the making – hosted by ArtsWestchester, orchestrated by artist Amanda Browder and built by the hands of the community.
What makes Browder’s projects so powerful are the ways in which they bring communities together at every level of their making, presenting multiple opportunities for inclusion. First, fabric was donated by local residents who dropped off bright, colorful swaths of non-stretchy opaque fabrics to participating centers. Next, the donated pieces of fabric were arranged, pinned and sewn together by individuals and community groups throughout Westchester. The resulting installation will be a work of participatory public art on display this May; a celebration of locality, community and sustainability.
Thank you for your interest in our public art project.
We have been monitoring the current situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) very carefully.
After thoughtful consideration, and with an abundance of caution for all involved, we will no longer
be holding community sewing days.
We look forward to unveiling Metropolis Sunrise with artist Amanda Browder as planned in mid-May.
