The Bed-Stuy CommUnity Fiber Art Project is a large-scale quilt created from textiles leftovers from community clothing swaps. The completed piece will be a great example of community building around art and reuse. The vision of the project is to combine the tradition of the area’s wall murals with the craft of African-American quilt making and African textiles as well as teach new crafting skills and encourage the reuse of everyday objects.
