The Collective Mending Sessions & the SDA
October 13, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
Learn about The Collective Mending Sessions, founding artist Catherine Reinhart, and the Surface Design Association.
Led by Iowa Artist & Surface Design Association (SDA) Marketing and Outreach Manager Catherine Reinhart, this lecture will discuss the artist’s personal journey with SDA and her socially engaged project which centers on collaboratively mending an tattered quilt. This project took place in various locations from 2018 – 2020, was supported by an grant from the Iowa Arts Council, the National Endowment from the Arts, and included in the 2019 Beyond the Surface Conference programming from the Surface Design Association. The presentation also discusses the upcoming round of Virtual mending sessions which will take place over Zoom, September 2020 – March 2021.
The Collective Mending Sessions offers a space of making, learning, teaching, sharing, and connecting. As individual agency takes place, the student becomes the teacher and the community gains authorship. In turn, the gallery becomes a place of gathering where the art instigates and facilitates connection.
A link to register for this panel will be made available by October 1st.
