The GYM at 640 Lincoln Street Art Theory and Practice Building Blankets, one of the primary materials used by Seneca artist Marie Watt, are everyday objects that can carry extraordinary histories. Many of Watt’s larger blanket works are made in community,  notably  in  “sewing circles,”  bringing people together in conversation and making. Join us for hands-on participation in one of Watt’s works while taking part in conversation on equity.

Partners include Northwestern’s Native American and Indigenous Peoples Steering Group, NAISA, CINAS, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the office of Neighborhood and Community Relations.
