The Lynch Quilts Project

The Lynch Quilts Project - LaShawnda Crowe Storm

 

LaShawnda Crowe Storm explores how a work of art grows beyond the mind of the artist, and only truly gains life once released to the hands of the community. The Lynch Quilts Project is a community-based effort that explores the history and ramifications of racial violence in the United States through the textile tradition of quilting.
