The Violet Protest
"The Violet Protest is a public effort to send 50 hand-made textile squares to each and every member of Congress in support of these core American values:
• Respect for the other • Citizenship
• Country over party and corporate influence
• Courage • Candor • Compassion
This collection of textile squares will be first displayed at Phoenix Art Museum, in the Spring of 2021, before they are sent to the new 117th Congress by late 2021.
Focused on the values we hold dear as Americans, rather than any political beliefs, the color violet symbolizes the literal combination of red and blue, long held as symbols of our nation's differing ideologies. Our common goal is to send a physical message of friendly protest through this colossal visual expression to demonstrate that if we as citizens are willing to come together, so then must our elected officials."
