Collective Mending Sessions
With Catherine Reinhart
IT ALL STARTED WITH… a tattered quilt from my teenage years that I told my mother to discard. Being wise, she did not. In 2018, this quilt returned to me and thus began the slow work of hand mending.
I quickly realized that I needed and wanted help repairing this object. The Collective Mending Sessions was born. This project is a series of socially engaged workshops centered on collaboratively mending my quilt. Click here for more information on the Collective Mending Sessions.
This program is part of a series anchored by the reACT art exhibition titled #WomenKnowStuffToo, which is open from March 2 through April 3 in the Reiman Gallery (lower level) of the Christian Petersen Art Museum in Morrill Hall. The purpose is to engage community members in an ongoing conversation celebrating women artists and makers, as well as their impact on the arts and expertise in the field.
#WomenKnowStuffToo is a partnership with University Museums, the Margaret Sloss Center for Women and Gender Equality, and the College of Design with additional support from the University Library, the Ames Public Library, Reliable Street, and the Des Moines Art Center.
