Verge Center for the Arts is pleased to present the exhibit 25 Million Stitches.
Please join us for the opening reception on June 12.
Created by artist Jennifer Kim Sohn, 25 Million Stitches is a community art installation of embroidered fabric panels by volunteers all over the world. By amassing 25 million stitches, this project brings awareness to the 25 million people across the globe who have been forced to flee their homelands as a consequence of genocide, war, poverty, natural disasters, targeted violence, and other grave threats.
Jennifer Kim Sohn is a multimedia artist and activist whose work highlights the pressing issues of our time. Her art has been exhibited in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and California. More recently, her work on Biodiversity/Extinction through the Art & Science Collaborations was shown in the New York Hall of Science, The Pennington School, and in online exhibits for the Queens Chronicle and the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation. She is a current resident artist at Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento.
