Join us for a guided tour of MODA's Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism exhibition with our Public Programming Director & Craftivist, Jess Lewis! Get the inside scoop on the Craftivist movement and learn about the powerful work on view in our current exhibition.
About Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism:
Craftivism is a worldwide movement that operates at the intersection of craft and activism. Across the globe, artists and crafters armed with traditional materials like yarn, glue guns, quilt patterns, sewing needles, X-ACTO knives, and other tools are using their hands to protest social and political inequalities and injustices.
The time spent on these works shows the dedication to creating pieces that evoke emotion and promote discussion. By sharing ideas expressed through the work of their hands, these artists and crafters aim to make you think, explore and take note.
This exhibition is curated by Betsy Greer, author of Craftivism: The Art and Craft of Activism.
