Stefanie Seiler of Sastekunst is a very creative, openminded and proactive artist and art educator. In her creative lab “Art in open RoomZ” she develops ideas how to showcase art in unusual places and how to inspire passers-by. During the years 2015 to 2018, she time and again posted art calls to participate in creating “Begegnungsstühle” (“meeting chairs”) to be installed all over the Glattpark area in Zurich. Above is my small work submission for this project.

Sherell Cuneo of Sew the SEEDS: Saving Earth’s Endangered and Diverse Species is a community arts quilt project about endangered species.
In 2018, she launched the ESA SOS Flag project. On the project’s site, Sherell wrote: <<The Endangered Species Act SOS Flag is a community arts quilt project that started as a reaction to the Trump administration’s attacks on the Endangered Species Act. The idea for a flag came from Kierán Suckling, the executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity. Artists from all over the world came together and contributed. There are 50 stars for 50 states and 50 species on a tattered embattled flag. The quote on the stripes is from Black Elk “One should pay attention to even the smallest crawling creature for these too may have a valuable lesson to teach us.”>>
My contribution to the project is the Colorado Jumping Mouse, a tribute to my sabbatical in Colorado.
Anne Kelly is a well known textile artist and writer of art books.
