Amanda Browder, a Brooklyn-based artist, is wrapping an entire building in the East Village with fabric. The work is being commissioned by local arts organization Fourth Arts Block for its annual art festival in September.
Bowder has done similar fabric installations in Brooklyn, Greenpoint and Chicago. The idea is for the building to look like someone is ‘pouring something over the top of the building.’
The artist has already collected about 60 pounds of colorful and multi-patterned fabric and estimates that she will need about 40 pounds more. She’s very much open to donations and helpers and even offers to teach volunteers to sew the fabrics.
The installation will go up on September 28th and will probably be on exhibit for only a day because of permit restrictions.
Interested donors or volunteers can contact the artist via email.
