This piece was done for a public art project, wherein our only direction was “a star”.

In “String Theory: The Strength of Our Woven Community”, the stars represent the City of Lincoln, surrounded and supported by a diverse mix of women as artists, all a little rough around the edges but continuously growing. The colorful threads symbolize the links between humanity regardless of race or culture, and the use of the heritage craft of piecework quilting emphasizes the importance of the role of women in this historic community.
This piece was part of the Star City Art Project – 2006. For more info, visit http://www.ywcalincoln.org/START2006.html.
