Live Coal Wins 2019 Knight Arts Challenge!

Live Coal Gallery is thrilled to once again be a Knight Arts Challenge winner. Our project, Aired Out Quilts, will utilize the oral histories of native and long-time Detroiters who have lived in neighborhoods that are either distinct, in transition, enduring or on the edge of abandonment. These stories will provide the inspiration for fiber artists to create contemporary freedom quilts that will be “aired out” and hung at homes in these select neighborhoods to serve as road maps to Detroit’s future.


Collaborating artists are (from left to right in photo above): Timashion Jones, Patricia Millender, April Shipp, Yvette Rock, and Jean Alicia Elster.
