Bridging – Upcoming Workshops with Sensoria Featured Artist Andrea Vail


Throughout Spring 2019, Vail will facilitate “Bridging,” a multi-campus, collaborative, and large-scale fabric project culminating in its installation in the Overcash Lobby for Sensoria. “Bridging” will be a tangible representation of Central Piedmont’s diverse community: coming from unique experiences, converging at Central Piedmont, then venturing onward. Rooted in the intercultural and generational traditions of patterned textiles, this work, embellished with palm-sized tassels and printed with student-sourced imagery, is both inclusive of individual identities and realized as one unified fabric.
