Freedom, 2018

Following the indictment of Larry Nassar, students from Michigan State University's Color and Design courses came together to create a community quilt. In listening to the powerful testimonials from survivors, it is clear that there is an inevitable loss of freedom that comes with sexual assault. In an effort of healing, students individually created quilt squares based on their interpretation of freedom. We then pieced each square together to form a quilt, an object that can provide comfort in this difficult time. The quilt will be displayed publicly at MSU, where viewers will have the opportunity to take down the quilt and cloak themselves in it in a moment of contemplation.
