ArtsWestchester is Calling All Stitchers to Create a Monumental Work of Public Art

We are part of The Trust Project

Between now and May 2020, textile artist Amanda Browder will design and fabricate “Metropolis Sunrise,” a colorful quilt-like sculpture with help from stitchers in the local community. Once complete, the sculpture will be draped from the top of ArtsWestchester’s nine-story building on Mamaroneck Avenue in downtown White Plains.

Several public sewing days have been scheduled to help create this work of art. See the schedule listed below. No sewing experience is needed. There’s a task for everyone.
