"Things that Matter" Piedmont Art Community Quilt Project

We would like to invite all members of the community to creatively express the “Things that Matter” in a community art quilt. We hope to display the “Things that Matter” quilt, with our interwoven and diverse narratives to capture this unique time, in the new theatre building.  Any funds raised will be used exclusively towards inclusive visual and performing arts programs at PUSD. We are launching our quilt project in February during Black History Month, to honor the Black Lives Matter Movement. As March is Art Month, we plan on weaving our creative community stories and unveiling the quilt in a public open space.  As this is a community-building event for all ages, please remember only school appropriate images can be included.
