Wall Together – The Cabbage Patch & The Little Loomhouse at the LOCAL SPEED
August 1, 2014 @ 12:00 am - October 25, 2014 @ 8:00 pmFree
Wall Together is a project that partners The Speed Art Museum with local art organizations or non-profits to engage community participation through art. In conjunction with the Speed and each Wall Together exhibition collaborator, there is a call to youth to create art that will be exhibited here at the Museum’s satellite space, Local Speed, four times a year, side–by-side with our main exhibition. The project was created with the goal to provide a site for community collaboration and a space for young artists to have the opportunity to share their unique perspectives through artistic expression. Wall Together welcomes proposals from organizations throughout the region and strives to be a reflection of Kentucky’s diverse youth culture.
The Little Loomhouse and The Cabbage Patch Settlement House have come together to further both their missions with Local Speed’s Wall Together project! Through the Little Loomhouse, youth from The Cabbage Patch Settlement House learned about textile arts, a medium often omitted from most visual arts curriculums, and then created work in the Navajo, Ojibwe, and Kentucky quilt and coverlet traditions. This project yielded the exhibit Working Hands: A Modern Generation Explores the Ancient Craft of Textiles.
