Boston Area Mask Initiative Commemorative Mask Scrap Quilt

Exhibition dates: December 4, 2021 - January 9, 2022

Fuller Craft Museum is proud to present the Boston Area Mask Initiative’s (BAMI) Commemorative Mask Scrap Quilt. This vibrant quilt was made from the scraps of thousands of fabric face masks, serving as the embodiment of the COVID-19 pandemic and the year 2020 for many in the maker community. It was sewn in memory of those lost, sewn in honor of those struggling to survive, sewn to commemorate the hours of unpaid labor of thousands (maybe millions) of women around the world who cut, stitched, packed, and delivered face masks to support the public health and the survival of community members throughout 2020.

This quilt is generously loaned by BAMI and Gather Here in Cambridge, MA.
