Anyone with memories of – or dreams for – Bahama Village are invited to join San Francisco artist William Rhodes in making a colorful, collaborative quilt that captures the neighborhood’s spirit and history. Write down a recollection, draw a picture, or put anything you think of on a square of fabric. The squares are then knotted into a loose felt quilt that captures the spirit of the community today and can grow forever as part of Goombay.

 

In partnership with Bahama Village Music Program and Black Educators Memorial Project

Supported by Community Foundation of the Florida Keys, Tom Majors Fund for Wood Artists and Florida Keys Council of the Arts
