It was powerful to see The Tiny Pricks Project in person after seeing photos of it on Instagram for so long.
I couldn’t help looking for mine. The exhibit is also going on in Miami right now so not all the #tinypricks are at The Foundry, the gallery we saw them at today. It took a while for me to find mine with all the others, but I did see three of the ones I made.
I loved my work being a part of that floor to ceiling mosaic.
One of the things I love about #tinypricks is how, from a distance, the exhibit appears soft and colorful and visually intriguing. It’s only when you get up close and see all the embroidered Donald Trump quotes that you feel the true power of the exhibit.
And when you know that each piece was hand-stitched by different people from all over the world it has an even greater impact.
Although Tiny Pricks is the genius of Diana Weymar, she has brought so many of us together through it. And we all, those of us who participate and those who view it, benefit from it. I dropped off my 9th #tinypricks at The Foundry today.
Tiny Pricks will be at The Foundry through the weekend of the 21st when they will be having a voter registration event. They are also open on Tuesday evenings and provide materials so people can get together at the gallery and create their own Tiny Prick.
