“Flint Water” by Sylvia Hernandez

“Flint Water” by Sylvia Hernandez

This is one in a series of posts featuring an artist whose work is included in the Threads of Resistance exhibition.

Artist’s Statement:
I made this quilt to bring attention to the poisoning of the water in Flint Michigan and the lack of interest in fixing the situation. I wrote a message in Spanish because immigrant families were not given bottled water from the government because they did not have ID.
