Hemmed Up: Stories through Textiles

Acclaimed Philadelphia-based artists Keir Johnston and Ernel Martinez developed this textile installation as part of their Hemmed Up project for the National Museum of American Jewish History.   It was part of the Museum’s inaugural year of their OPEN for Interpretation artist-in-residence program. The team was inspired by the American Jewish relationship to the textile industry and the themes of immigration, labor and struggle.  You can see the work through August 25th.   Check out the link here.
