Mark Your Calendars: Prismatic Vortex Sewing Day

Arts@Renaissance has been rolling out a number of really amazing events— but this one (which I discovered via North Brooklyn Community Group) is especially interesting and as such merits special attention. Here’s the low-down:
An artist and all-around nice lady named Amanda Brower is endeavoring to create a site-specific fabric installation at Arts@Renaissance. This will be called “Primatic Vortex”. In order to make this happen she needs our help. Here’s how we can lend a hand:
- Donations such as fabric (specifically: cotton, sheets, pants, and non-stretchy fabric in all colors and/or patterns), notions, sewing tools such as needles, thread, and scissors will be greatly appreciated. These can be dropped off at Arts@Renaissance (2 Kingsland Avenue) or at any Round Robin Collective’s event (whose calendar can be found here).
- By literally lending a hand February 18th: no experience is necessary and all ages are welcome!
This installation, once completed, will reside at Arts@Renaissance during Round Robin’s artist in residency therein (Think: until mid March). This is a really wonderful opportunity for us north Brooklynites to donate our time (or in my case: a bunch of hoarded fabric) to make our community an even more beautiful place. Anyone wishing to get more information about this event should check out Prismatic Vortex’s Facebook page or Tumblr page; or contact masterminds behind this endeavor (Amanda and her aide de camp Ailsa) via email at: amandabrowder (at) gmail (dot) com or ailsa (dot) cavers (at) gmail (dot) com.
