Amanda Browder art

Want to be a part of making a monumental art project? This is your chance!

Don’t want to sew but still want to be a part of the project? Please help Amanda create this unique work by bringing donations of fabric to one of AAC’s donation sites or to this talk. The artist is looking for fabric donations with bright, fluorescent, saturated colors and patterns, in non-stretchy, opaque materials like cotton, rayon and velvet. She requests that all pieces of fabric for donation be one square foot at minimum.

About Amanda Browder

Amanda Browder (American, b. Missoula, MT, 1976) currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, producing large-scale textile installations for building exteriors and other public sites. Her works engage local volunteers using donated materials to produce pieces that are deeply rooted in the communities in which they are installed.

This year, Browder will undertake new works as the inaugural Transformation Fellow of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and as one of the artists for the ArtPrize Grand Rapids Project 1 exhibition. In 2016, she received her first National Endowment for the Arts grant, which enabled her to collaborate  with the Albright-Knox Art Gallery to drape three buildings in Buffalo, NY.

City of Threads, which will be installed on the exterior of Arlington Arts Center’s historic building in Arlington, VA, will be unveiled on June 22, in conjunction with the opening of AAC’s summer exhibitions.
