Diversity Quilt presented to the City of Shoreline

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Artist Marita Dingus was chosen by a jury panel to oversee the creation of artwork by the public at the 2009 Shoreline Arts Festival with the theme "Weaving a Cultural Tapestry." Over 300 festival attendees created "dolls" or figures from recycled materials, which the artist has assembled into a border framework. The finished piece, "Diversity Quilt," was presented to the City Council on Monday, January 11, and was installed on the 4th floor at Shoreline City Hall.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council was pleased to coordinate this project, sponsored by the City of Shoreline as part of its Diversity Strategy. Marita Dingus is well-known regionally and nationally through her many public art commissions, exhibitions at major institutions such as Seattle Art Museum, and is represented by Francine Seders Gallery in Seattle.
