WOMEN TAKE THE POLLS! Yarn Bomb Maker Day
Fabric-based crafts are a powerful tool to broadcast messages supporting key rights and concerns and political statements. A group of local artists and activists, in collaboration with The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, invite caring supporters of the democratic process to join them in an act of “craftivism” aimed at encouraging Madisonians to have their vote counted in the November elections. No particular skills are required other than the desire to inspire others to act in the interest of all. Lead artists Chele Isaac, Kelly Parks Snider and Rachel griffin will join with community participants to create “get out and vote” yarn-bomb cozies that will be installed as a one-of-a-kind activist, public art installation in downtown Madison on the University of Wisconsin campus. Come one, come all, and be part of art in action!
