It may seem like an odd post, a video for a live sewing circle, but the team at the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art have busied themselves during these trying times by partnering up with local charities and organisations to make masks, as many as they can.

Here are the three videos so far, and information on how you can help.

The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is partnering with LA-based artists and artisans to sew 1,500 masks for local organizations in immediate need.

Since we are dedicated to the art of storytelling, we are moderating 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 Ginger Alleyne and Sonia Smith-Kang, and the museum’s Director of Collections Management, Alyssa Morasco, speak live with the museum’s Managing Director of Education, Nenette Luarca-Shoaf, about the role of sewing in their work, how they have had to reorient their skills during this time, their family histories with sewing, and more.
