More Info

Harriet Tubman Mural Debut Please join us at the Schweinfurth Art Center on Thursday May 4th from 6-8 pm to celebrate the installation of a 32 ft crocheted mural of Harriet Tubman on the front of the Art Center. Over 150 community volunteers have created this mural by crocheting 2ft x 2ft squares under the direction of visiting artist, Olek. The mural should be on view all summer. 

The mural is part of the Love Across the USA crochet project by Olek, an internationally recognized crochet artist whose work often amplifies the voices of women. Olek's goal is to create a large scale mural in every state, celebrating a strong female figure from each location. For the state of New York, she chose two women: Harriet Tubman in Auburn, and Susan B. Anthony in Rochester. Auburn, NY will be one of the first cities in the country to complete the project.
