About this project

Thank you for coming to see this project on Kickstarter.

How do you embody love in your day-to-day life? How do you express love in your creativity?  How would you share the vision of that love with others in the form of a 1’ x 8’ panel? 

A unique three-dimensional, walk-through spiral of all-white panels has been created by a growing group of artists who are expressing their personal visions of love. Called the Walking In Love Installation, it has captured the imagination of the contributing artists and everybody who has seen it, giving them a new awareness of love in their own lives.

Yvonne Pegararo, manager of the Highland Art Center where the installation was recently displayed said, "It has been the most powerful exhibit I have seen in my time as manager here."

Now, a unique opportunity has arisen that will send the Walking In Love Installation to Washington, D.C. for the national Sacred Threads show this June and July.  Sacred Threads is a biennial exhibition that showcases the work of fiber artists who see their work as a connection to the sacred, or an expression of their spiritual journey.  To fulfill the dream of taking the installation to Washington we need your generous donation.

This project has been a collaborative effort from its inception. It continues to invite and inspire new artists to create panels and contribute to the growing vision of Walking in Love.  Please consider sharing in this vision by becoming a financial patron and help make Walking in Love’s cross-country journey a reality.

We have an on going call for works in white from any artists that would like to be part of The Walking in Love Installation. If you are an artist and would like to create a panel please visit our blog site for an application.We will hang accepted panels throughout the Sacred Threads show.

A portion of money you contribute will be used by the Walking In Love Team to create a 16’ x 16’ x 10’ high portable room with a copper structure which will support the hanging of the installation, along with all construction, coordination and transportation costs of materials and people to Washington DC. The remainder of the proceeds will provide for further travel and start up costs.The structure may include: fiber walls, a ceiling, and gallery quality halogen lighting. The structure will be reusable for future venues. 

We are sponsored by a non profit called Leading From Within. As a Funding Patron your contribution is tax-deductible.
