Join SAIC at Homan Square artist in residence Rachel Wallis for a community quilting circle for her new work Inheritance Quilt. Inheritance Quilt is a collaboration with a group of women in Cook County Jail. Over the last five weeks, they have been writing, drawing and telling stories about the idea of inheritance – what was passed down to them in their families and what they want to pass down to their children and grandchildren.
During this three hour quilting circle, we will gather together to sew and embroider their designs and writing, while discussing the impact of incarceration on millions of families across the country.
Space is limited, please RSVP at Eventbrite Page: https://inheritancehoman.eventbrite.com
