Threads That Bind: Boro-Linc Community Artist Exhibit
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT | As the final event of Lincoln Center’s Boro-Linc Manhattan series,
Manny Cantor Center is proud to present a display of work by our Lincoln Center Resident Artist, Cozbi Cabrera. Our Community Quilt, on view in the Jewish Communal Fund Gallery (MCC Lobby), is the
culminating artwork of a series of intergenerational community quilting workshops with Cozbi that explored personal history, family and community, answering questions like: where do we come from? Who came before us? The Ernest Rubenstein Gallery (M FL) display includes paintings from Cozbi’s children’s book, Stitchin’ And Pullin’: A Gees Bend Quilt, and a collection of heirloom dolls similar to those made by guests during our spring Lincoln Center events, created as heirlooms for safekeeping for another generation.
