Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure - Art Tent, 2012

Location:  Jackson, NJ
United States
Project Description: 

Using large sheets of paper, anyone of the 20,000 Race guests could draw their emotions about breast cancer, honor a survivor or remember someone who lost the fight. After all 10 sheets of paper were covered by our guests, I cut measured 1.5" lines on the back of each sheet, creating warp and weft lines. Komen volunteers gathered at headquarters to cut each sheet and begin weaving them into fabric. Working together, both at the Race, and afterwards in the weaving "circle", we created using single strips, strong fabric which represents the fact that we are stronger united than singly.
