Corinthian Hall Craft Intervention

Help add color, through a yarn intervention at this site, to honor the work of the Rochester Ladies Anti-Slavery Sewing Society, who invited Douglass to speak at Corinthian Hall (now a parking lot) on July 5, 1852, where he delivered his now famous Fourth of July speech. The curators of the exhibit Crafting Democracy: Fiber Arts and Activism seek volunteers and fiber artists to leave their colorful mark on Rochester history. Help us honor a premier piece of Rochester’s abolitionist past – with yarn and thread!

Co-curators Juilee Decker and Hinda Mandell will lead a yarn installation to bring vibrancy and color to this parking lot. But they need your help! The curators seek craft contributions that will be installed on the site.
