The "bonus art" on display with The Wave is called the Wailing Wall Quilt. Because so many people sending me their DVDs were including notes, I asked myself "how can I make a piece of art that let's people speak?"
Inspired by the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, where people tuck their prayers on pieces of paper amid the chinks of the wall, I came up with the idea of quilting together a "wall" of the DVD sleeves.
The open pockets of the sleeves created the perfect pocket for tucking thoughts and prayers.
Remembering my grandmother's quilting bees, I
invited 22 women and girls to join me one Sunday afternoon to join me in sewing the sleeves together, using their creativity to each create their own square.
I invite you to come by and add your own thoughts and prayers.
