Holy Cow!

So a little while ago I made some flags for the To Boston With Love exhibit that is displayed at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. I've looked at several peoples pictures from the event hoping that maybe I could spot my flags, but I haven't had much luck.

Well today I clicked on a link that directed me to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston website, and right there on the main page for the exhibit hung my flags! I was shocked and excited all at the same time, I never expected that I would be able to see them.



Here is the description of the exhibit from the Museums ehibit page:

"Flags in Shapiro Family Courtyard honor and support Boston.

Visit “To Boston With Love,” an installation of more than 1700 hand-sewn flags strung across the Shapiro Family Courtyard. The flags were created by quilters from nearly every state in the US and from countries around the world. The flags convey inspirational messages of hope, evoke symbols of love and peace, and highlight iconic Boston images—the familiar “B” of the Boston Red Sox logo, the Citgo sign and Zakim Bridge, the city’s skyline, and “Boston Strong.”

The project was a grass-roots effort conceived by Berene Campbell of Vancouver, Canada, and organized locally by Amy Friend of West Newbury. Part of Free Memorial Day Community Weekend."
