Quilting Bee with Emily Johnson and Maggie Thompson

Venue

Come for a stitch and contribute to a large-scale volunteer quilting project designed by Makwa Studio textile artist Maggie Thompson (Fond du Lac Ojibwe). Thompson’s 4,000-square-foot installation of 84 community-made quilts serve as a gathering place for audiences who attend Then a Cunning Voice and A Night We Spend Gazing at Stars —a 15-hour all-night performance gathering and feast created by choreographer Emily Johnson (Yup’ik).
