American Spring 2017

April, 2017

On January 21st, as we were driving back to NY from the Women’s March on Washington, my friend and I decided that we were experiencing an “American Spring”, because it felt so much like a jolt, an awakening after a deep, sleepy torpor. The election had plunged many of us into a tailspin of depression and passivity, and this march provided the opportunity to react and resist. It was exhilarating to see how many people all over the world were able to use this opportunity to have their voices heard.

Inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, I created compositions for a scarf and double-sided pillow cover, based on the myriad of photographs taken during that day.

A portion of proceeds from sales will go to Planned Parenthood.

So many people have generously contributed their time and skills to participate in the American Spring 2017 campaign, and the list continues to grow…
