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 will be donated by local residents who are encouraged to drop off bright, colorful swaths of non-stretchy opaque fabrics to participating centers: Pelham Art Center, India Center of Westchester, ArtsWestchester, Bennett Conservatory of Music, Blue Door Art Center, The Rye Art Center and The Arc of Westchester. Next, those pieces of fabric will be arranged, pinned and sewn together by individuals and community groups, with Browder’s help, during the project’s organized “public sewing days.” The resulting installation will be a work of participatory public art on display this May; a celebration of locality, community and sustainability.
