Description
Identity Tapestry: Mary Corey March is currently on display in the Museum’s hallway thru January 14, 2018. The Museum describes the exhibit as follows:

Through a variety of mediums, artist Mary Corey March explores questions of individuality, humanity, data, and expression. March’s participatory installation Identity Tapestry will enlist SJMQT visitors in creating a portrait of our community. Participants choose a ball of yarn to trace along the framework of statements pinned to the wall. These statements begin with basic biographical information, such as “I am a woman,” but splinter off into more complex facets of identity: “I have seen someone dying,” “I stop to enjoy a beautiful moment,” “I am fortunate.” Connecting point to point with their yarn, participants trace out the paths of their identities, making visible the ways in which we are the same and different from one another. In each of its locations, including San Francisco, Pepperdine University, Southern Vermont College, and Pfäffikon, Switzerland, Identity Tapestry thus becomes a work of art as unique as the people who contribute to it.
