We Are Home: A Community Quilt Project
Presented by SoLA – South LA Contemporary Gallery, and hosted by Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC)
SoLA is inviting all Los Angeles area residents to participate in a community-based art endeavor. Los Angeles community members are encouraged to donate quilt blocks that share reflections of “Home”. Home can be interpreted to mean anything – from your family, local community, personal home, neighborhood or your business, to the larger concept of the earth or the universe. Donated quilt blocks will be assembled into quilts that will exhibit at various spaces in Los Angeles, including Angels Gate Cultural Center in November.
Concluding the We Are Home quilt exhibition tour, individual quilt blocks will be auctioned and all proceeds will be donated to Homelessness Organizations.
We appreciate your creative investment in this project to help heal our community!
