2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Kathryn will expand on her 2015 Art and Change Grant project, The Healing Blanket – a collection of small hand-woven pieces created by family members, each representing a homicide that took place in Philadelphia in 2015. In honor of the 280 people killed by gun violence, Kathryn plans to hold a memorial and procession at the BKG Funeral Home in North Philadelphia. Here, she will assemble The Healing Blanket pieces along with photos of those killed and then drape it over a casket for viewing. This memorial will be a public outcry against gun violence and will give people an opportunity to express their grief as well as call for peace and healing in our communities. It will also be a plea to put guns down and change gun control legislation.
