Join educators from 12-2pm for free artmaking activities. This month, we will be focusing on making small, memorial pouches for The Healing Memorial project, organized by the City of Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship, the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy and Cranbrook Art Museum to recognize all that has been lost over the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Conceived by artist (and Cranbrook Academy of Art alumna) Sonya Clark, it is an interpretation of her Beaded Prayer exhibit, which has traveled the world for more than a decade. All pouches created will be collected and become part of a tapestry of memories to be displayed at Detroit’s TCF Center in a permanent living memorial that will be unveiled on Aug. 31.
Funding for this project is made possible by the generous support of the Ford Fund, TCF Bank, the City of Detroit, the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, and Cranbrook Art Museum.
