The coronavirus, while keeping us apart is also very much bringing us together, and the good people at the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art are doing their part, making masks for the South LA area.
Since we are dedicated to the art of storytelling, we invite you to join us for a series of online “sewing circles.” Sewing circles have long been spaces for free expression, activism, and storytelling across generations—especially for women—with open discussions and community building. Artists/makers will be in conversation with Lucas Museum Managing Director of Education, Nenette Luarca-Shoaf, about the role of sewing in their work, how they have re-imagined their artistic practice during this time, their family histories with sewing, and more.
Want to watch? Follow the Lucas Museum on Facebook and tune in on our page on May 13 – 5 pm PT, May 15 – 12 pm PT, and May 16 – 11 am PT, to watch the live conversations (a Facebook account is not needed to watch the talks).
Through our mask-making project, local artists and the museum’s staff are sewing masks for organizations in need including 1736 Family Crisis Center, All Peoples Community Center, Community Build, Midnight Mission, St John’s Well Child and Family Center Health Care Clinic (SLA), and the WEDC Senior Centers and Transitional Homes.
