The Barn Quilt Project: South Dakota Strong Begins
February 8, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Barn Quilt Project: South Dakota Strong
ACW member Rebecca Froehlich will join other trained artists in healthcare for a new project taking place in her home state of South Dakota.
The Barn Quilt Project: South Dakota Strong will reach nine communities across South Dakota, including rural areas with lower vaccination rates. This winter, community members who attend the art events will create a barn quilt design from decorative art materials and write about the year of the pandemic. Quiltmaking is a cross-cultural tradition in South Dakota that represents home, family, comfort, and history. The Barn Quilt Project connects familiar quilt patterns with stories of resilience from trusted messengers of vaccine information. The project is made possible by Creative Care LLC, the Vermillion Cultural Association, and the CDC Foundation.
