ArtEcoTech Quarantine Quilt Project

ArtEcoTech is launching its first project in honor of its 30th anniversary. ArtEcoTech’s mission is to create community using Art, Ecology, and Technology.

Quilts are traditionally made from up-cycled material and have been a craft that has brought community together. It is also a craft that can be created in isolation and then brought together to create a community artwork project
and artwork.

The COVID 19 virus has forced the shutdown of galleries, museums, universities, events, and classes. Most artists are self-employed and rely on galleries, events, and classes for their income.

Artists thrive on interaction with the public and each other. This project will provide the opportunity for artists to create, sale their work, and provide a sense of community in a time of isolation.

Each artist will be asked to Create a 12×12 quilt block. The block can be embroidered or embellished, pieced, painted, collaged. As long as it has a 12×12 fabric base and can be sewn together, we want it!

Blocks will be mailed to or dropped off at ArtEcoTech or participating sites and assembled by artists and professional quilters.

Any age can send in art! Sponsor a community, school or business quilt. Make it a family project, a personal project, or video chat with a group of friends while you make your pieces! Though we are quarantined, it doesn’t mean we have to be alone! Let’s create in our Quarantine!

Each block will be included in a collaborative art project “Quarantine Quilt” and be displayed at an event after the quarantine or in an outdoor popup driving exhibit if the quarantine continues into fall. Our hope is to have at least
a dozen quilts or more.

Projects will be accepted through June 2020 or a month after the quarantines have ended (we will update this information as timelines develop). We know that not all art is a fast process and understand it may be difficult to mail in pieces right away. That’s ok! We want everyone to stay safe and healthy, practice good social distancing,
and create!
