Encouraging Banners, 2007

Participants in this project* at Mon Yough Community Rehabilitation Services in McKeesport, PA developed phrases for ideas that would help them in their daily lives. They hand-stitched felt on felt overcoming a multitude of barriers to complete the banners that they would hang in a place where it could be an inspiration. An exhibition of their finished work provided them an opportunity to present their accomplishments to the public.

Inspired by Miranda July's project
