Shibori Peace Quilt Project
Tuesday – Friday, August 5 – 10
Daily 12-3 pm
Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh
Visitors will create Shibori (Japanese tie-dye) quilt squares in the museum’s Art Studio that will then be sewn together to form a quilt. The final quilt will be displayed at the Children’s Museum. Members of Remembering Hiroshima, Imagining Peace will take the quilt to New York for the International Nuclear Proliferation Conference and peace demonstration in 2015, where it will be presented to representatives from Hiroshima and Nagasaki to take back to Japan. More info here. The opening reception for the Shibori Peace Quilt will be held in October.
We had a compelling and thought-provoking evening, watching Kurosawa’s masterpiece and then Skyping with members of the Popoki Peace Project in Japan. Many thanks to Pittsburgh Filmmakers for making the event possible!
