$5 general admission
FREE for Members

Join Brooklyn-based textile and installation artist Amanda Browder (American, born 1976) for an introduction to her work and a discussion of her project Spectral Locus, which will be installed in Buffalo in late August 2016 as part of the Albright-Knox’s Public Art Initiative.

Using donated and recycled fabrics and with the assistance of volunteers, Browder creates monumental quilts, covers, and drapes designed to add striking alterations to large architectural structures. Browder will be hosting “public sewing days” throughout the region from April to August to help produce her work Spectral Locus and invites craftspeople, artists, persons with disabilities, and novices alike to join in the production.

To be a part of Browder’s project, you are invited to attend the free Drop-in Art Activity: Public Sewing Event with Amanda Browder on May 6 from 4 to 7 pm.
