Arlington Art Truck: TIES THAT BIND: learn To Sew On A Button and Connect by artists Lorenzo Cardim with Charlene Wallace and Angela Latson will teach you how to sew a button while building community connections.
Learning to repair your clothing is a great way to conserve resources. For the fall Arlington Art Truck project, artists Lorenzo Cardim, Charlene Wallace, and Angela Latson will teach participants how to sew a button while building community connections. You'll sew fun colorful buttons of all shapes and sizes onto fabric shaped like Arlington civic associations or neighborhoods to create a map of Arlington. During this eight week activation, segments of the map will fill up with colorful buttons which collectively represent the diversity of our community.
Ties That Bind - Onsite project
These pieces of fabrics displaying Arlington Civic Association will be sewn into a full map of Arlington County and exhibited at the Ellen Bozman Center Courthouse.
