Welcome Blanket QAL
Welcome Blanket is a crowd-sourced artistic action that calls for over 3,000 blankets to be knit, crocheted, or sewn from 3,500,640 yards of yarn, a length equal to the proposed border wall dividing the United States and Mexico. Welcome Blanket invites participants to stitch the blankets for new immigrants as well as for refugees seeking resettlement and send them with personal notes of welcome and stories of immigration to the Smart Museum of Art. We are proud to be supporting this effort by being a drop off station as well as hosting quilt-a-longs for folks that want to work together on this important project.
