In 2018 I was commissioned by the Jewish Arts Collaborative to create a site specific greater Boston area public art work that would engage various parts of the diverse community in a conversation about freedom and immigration. Inspired by themes of the jewish story of Passover, or the Exodus story, I created a tapestry of 1800 individuals stories. They shared by making a pin, and then a digital copy was made into a 6000 square foot mural in Boston Common at the based of Soldiers and Sailors Monument. You can see more here

You can still have a part of the project by buying a pin. Created by individuals to reflect their relationship to Freedom and Immigration, you can now own an edition of these pins. There are 6 to choose from and three of each available. You can hear participants stories also online.

  1. Breath in my lungs
  2. D.A.C.A
  3. Eight Generations
  4. My mother
  5. My sons giggles
  6. UN Table

As part of my research for this project I went to Lesbos, Greece to work with refugees who had landed by crossing the Agean Sea. 50% sale of the pins will be donated to the LightHouse Relief Project, which is the group that I worked with and who continue to work very hard keeping people fed, clothed and safe.
