HOME OF GOOD: A Black Seattle Storyquilt
This project began in 2017, and evolved with the participation of the brilliant leader and educator, Dr. Maxine Mimms. She proposed creating accompanying curriculum. This quilt now belongs to Dr. Mimms, and she will be installing it in various Black cultural locations to be used as a living, teaching object. This is our debut exhibition.
