The Mourning Project
September 3, 2018 through May 12, 2019
This major community fiber art project aims to collect 23,000 handmade baby booties by Mothers Day, 2019. Gathered together in a travelling art exhibition, these black, gray and white little elegies will create a picture too big to ignore. The installation will draw attention to the problem of infant mortality, and advocate for policies that save lives. More than 23,000 American infants die each year before their first birthday, the worst infant mortality rate in the developed world. Booties can be sewn, knit, felted, or crocheted, but should be in the colors of mourning: black/white/gray or any combination (embellishments excepted). Booties must be received by Mother's Day May 12, 2019. Please visit the website TheMourningProject.com for details on how to be a part of this major community fiber art project. There is no charge to participate, though I ask that you consider giving $1 per pair of booties to cover costs related to shipping the booties (storage and shipping containers) Mary Vaneecke Founder, TheMourningProject.com
