About the Art
This community weaving project came to Taino artist Adria Garcia through dreams—dreams of people coming together from all walks of life and working to create, connect, see, listen, and possibly heal. By contributing even a blade of grass, we can weave something together holding our collective energy and hopes. All plants within the piece were locally sourced from neighbors, friends, family, wedding ceremonies, and the artist’s own healing herbal garden. This weaving is one of five total; all others have been dried over the winter, rolled, and burned in ceremony on sacred Native sites (with permission) as an offering.
