Drop-In Art Activity: Public Sewing with Amanda Browder for Spectral Locus

Friday, May 6, 2016 ● 4 pm

Education Classrooms 

Be a part of AK Public Art! Join Brooklyn-based textile and installation artist Amanda Browder in the production of her work Spectral Locus, which will be installed in Buffalo in late August 2016.

Using donated and recycled fabrics and with the assistance of volunteers, Browder creates monumental quilts, covers, and drapes designed to add striking alterations to large architectural structures. Browder will be hosting “public sewing days” throughout the region from April to August and invites craftspeople, artists, persons with disabilities, and novices alike to join in the production. 

Following the drop-in art activity, learn more about Browder’s process and project with an Artist Talk in the Auditorium at 7:30 pm.


On the first Friday of every month—from 10 am to 10 pm—admission to part of the museum and select events are free for everyone. Art classes and certain tours are available to the general public for a fee. Learn More
