“Fear is a disease that eats away at logic and makes man inhuman.” – Marian Anderson
Mounted in Philadelphia, PA, 100 crocheters contributed 140 squares to make this beautiful tribute to Philly’s own Marian Anderson.
“I will not allow my life’s light to be determined by the darkness around me.” – Sojourner Truth
Mounted in Akron, OH with the help of over 110 volunteers, this portrait of Sojourner Truth is comprised of over 700,000 loops!
Other murals in the series so far have included Harriett Tubman and Susan B. Anthony, and Nina Simone. Read more about the community-made murals via Smithsonian Magazine … and be sure to follow the progress of Olek’s amazing “Love Across the USA” project here.
