Welcome Blanket Exhibition in the Design Center

Helms Design Center 8745 Washington Boulevard, Culver City, CA

Free
Welcome Blanket is a platform for engagement that transforms the abstract concept of immigration into a tangible crowd-sourced artistic action. Handcraft makers are invited to make Welcome Blankets that include notecards with stories important to their families about immigration/migration/relocation to create symbolic and practical gifts of welcome for new refugees coming to the United States. These gifts are collected, catalogued, and displayed at art institutions and exhibitions. After each show’s close, Welcome Blanket’s 30+ partner refugee resettlement groups present these tangible gifts of welcome to our newest neighbors.
