This 24 x 48” version of The Mourning Project: One Day features 63 pairs of handmade baby booties, one little elegy for each child lost before their first birthday every day in the US. It is a tiny portion of the 23,000 pairs we are collecting from makers all over the world to draw attention to the infant mortality rate in this country.
This version of the project will be at the Norfolk D’Art Center in Norfolk, VA for their Materials II exhibition, from October 10th, 2020-November 7th, 2020. Opening reception is Thursday, October 15 from 5:30-7:30 pm. The awards will be announced on Facebook Live, so stay tuned!
