Cut, sew, donate and participate – Make public art a community act!
Join Brooklyn artist Amanda Browder and North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (NbPac) in the construction of Future Phenomena, Browder’s temporary public art project sponsored by NbPac and the Brooklyn Arts Council. To help bring this immense, sewn artwork to life, NbPac will be hosting three COMMUNITY SEWING DAYS and we need your help!

Saturday, May 1st

DONATE – Contribute your unused fabric to help make the piece! We are covering a building and we need a lot of materials! Looking for cotton, sheets, pants, and non-stretchy fabric, and sewing tools such as needles, thread, and scissors. We are also seeking to borrow sewing machines for just one day or donations of machines for the project. For questions or to arrange donations, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “NbPac” in the subject header.
CUT – Help cut fabric to form the chevron shape which will make a true spectacle!
SEW – Help sew with easy straight stiches on a sewing machine (tutoring available!) to physically bind the donated fabrics into it’s awesome shape.
CONVERSE – Help cheer on people working, make new friends and meet other community members, learn and collaborate
It will be a fun day of volunteerism and artmaking! Bring your craft-loving family members and friends!
Future Phenomena will be installed in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in Spring 2010. To learn more about this project, visit:
