Open Doors Feature: Honor Quilt Project

We were so impressed by the student's work from the Academy at Shawnee! We worked with art teacher Beth Holladay to bring a project inspired by Judy Chicago's Honor Quilt to her classroom. Students chose a female visual artist who's work they admired and created a quilt panel to honor them. Kara Walker, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Marilyn Minter, Mary Cassatt, and Bridget Riley were just a few of the artists selected by the students.
