Have you ever noticed how much art there is around Patchwork?
There’s a lot. Especially when you start to catalog it all.
We discovered that fact this summer when Annabeth, our summer intern, started working on a website that documents Patchwork’s art collection. She covered every corner of the buildings and grounds photographing art as we remembered yet another piece to add to the site.
“Oh yeah. There’s that piece in the back entryway.”
“Make sure to get a photo of that banner over the kitchen door.”
“Wow. I never realized how much art there is in the main office.”
And every piece has a story to accompany it. Some stories have been documented well. Other pieces are more of a mystery with stories that are half remembered.
Thanks to Annabeth’s hard work, a catalog of Patchwork’s art is now available for everyone to enjoy. I invite you to check it out. It’s at:
There is still more art to add to the list, and there are still more details to add about the art we’ve already documented. If you see something that needs to be corrected or added to, if you have a new story to share about a particular piece, or if you have a question you’ve always wanted to ask about a piece here, please let me know.
We’d love to collect and share more of the stories that accompany our art.
