Get Ready for A Must-See Public Art Installation!
Artist Amanda Browder’s community art project has been three years in the making. The monumental fabric sculpture, which will be draped along the front of ArtsWestchester’s historic building at 31 Mamaroneck Avenue, was started in 2019 before being halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now it will officially be unveiled during the Serious Fun Arts Fest next week. Metropolis Sunrise was created with repurposed fabrics sourced from community members who also helped to cut, pin and sew together 10,000 square feet of fabric. In all, nearly 1,000 people helped to assemble the six-stories-high artwork, which has become a beacon of cultural engagement in the community.
What did it take to make “Metropolis Sunrise?” 10,000 square feet of donated and recycled fabric; 135,000 yards of thread; 1,000 volunteers; 35 public sewing days. Join us to See Metropolis Sunrise on Thursday Oct. 13 During our Gallery Hop. Register For This Free Event “Metropolis Sunrise” by Amanda Browder.
This project is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
