ART 180, one of the non-profits I was very involved with in Richmond, is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary this year. They did a very cool campaign where people would create (in the size of a dollar bill) something that showed what that person would like to see in their community. Along with a $10 donation, the goal was to get 1,000 “Change for a Ten” creations.
Here’s the one that I made:
I like how it turned out! I stamped on and embroidered the fabric, and backed it with brown felt. It was a kind of hard for me to put into words what I’d like to see changed in my community. But I boiled it down, and put it as succinctly as I could. It was a good exercise for me to do that – and I bet for others as well.
