From Text to Textiles: A Collaborative Art Show - 2010

October 14 to January 8, 2010 at the Cancer Lifeline Center, Seattle, WA

Members of CQA worked with the staff of Seattle’s Cancer Lifeline organization to assemble this exciting art show, displayed at CLL’s Dorothy S. O’Brien Center near Green Lake, October 14, 2009-January 8, 2010. Each creative, colorful art quilt was paired with a poem written by a participant in Cancer Lifeline’s writing program.

Just as the quilt artists were inspired by the thoughts and words of the poets, we hope you will be inspired by viewing these texts and textiles.
