Identity Banners Sewing Workshop

Saturday, April 27, 2019

Artist Laura Marsh is known for her vibrant ‘identity banners,’ which represent the desire to become an inclusive society that recognizes diversity as a positive sign of cultural strength. In this artmaking workshop, the artist will guide students as they explore and analyze their identities through sewing, embroidery and assemblage! After learning introductory sewing techniques, students will create bold identity banners of their own – a colorful visual statement that is equal parts flag and self-portrait! Laura Marsh is the Curator of Exhibitions for the Art & Culture Center / Hollywood. She received her MFA in Sculpture from Yale University School of Art, CT and her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art, OH. As both an artist and a curator, Marsh supports contemporary installation and social practice in both her own studio as well as fellow artists.
