2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Ana’s project, La Familia, is a travelling exhibition of traditional hand made bobbin lace work created in Puerto Rico during the island’s transition from Spanish to American domain. As the heir to a collection of bobbin lace crafted by her ancestors, Ana will exhibit this work and share the craft with new audiences in Philadelphia. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of gallery talks and workshops intended to call attention to this disappearing art form, its history and practice. Ana hopes to increase the chances of the craft’s survival, and showcase and celebrate a lost art form of the Puerto Rican community.
