The Land of Hidden Gems project began with several organizations that hosted free sewing workshops led by Amanda Browder. During this seven week sewing project Amanda Browder visited our Cheyenne worksite to demonstrate our part in the Land of Hidden Gems project.
The Land of Hidden Gems was a collaboration of recycled fabrics donated to several organizations within southern Nevada. TSI participated by hosting a sewing workshop were everyone involved learned how to stitch and sew their pieces of fabric together that would later be attached to the finished piece.
Over 150 volunteers helped install the large scale fabric to the east side of UNLV’s [Archie C. Grant] Hall Building. It was on display to the public to view from April 2nd thru April 12th 2019.
Amanda Browder is a Brooklyn – based installation and community engagement artist..
