Immigrant Yarn Project

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Immigrant Yarn Project is the largest work of crowd-sourced art in the country - celebrating tolerance, difference and the vital contributions that immigrants have made to our success story. It's a metaphor for our crazy, wonky, diverse and colorful country created by immigrants and their descendants to honor and celebrate them.

Countless squares, pieces, pompoms and blankets knitted by immigrants and their descendants arrive in our studio daily. From high schools in California to retirement centers in Maine, we have collected these works of art - each representing a personal or familial story. The pieces are compiled, sewn together and fashioned into over 100 sculptural totems, comprising a single colossal work of yarn-based art.

We think it's time to rise above the division and come together to recognize what we all have in common—citizenry in a nation composed of diverse backgrounds, families, politics, faiths, identities and ideas.
