Homecoming, natural fibers, beads, 60″w x 42″h

A community-engaged project involving the residents of Henning, Alexandria, & Fergus Falls, MN; and Wahpeton, ND. This project involved my traveling to the various communities and engaging residents in handstitching a large fabric wall hanging which I had designed for the new Fargo Sanford Hospital. Along with this activity, I shared the poem Where I’m From by George Ella Lyon and asked each particpant to respond with a few lines written on the backing of the piece. The finished piece is now hanging on the 8th floor of the hospital. Fabric printer: Spoonflower, Commissioned by Sanford Health for Fargo Sanford Hospital, Fargo, ND
