Hola Lou


STATEMENT

Detrás de esta pieza de arte puedes encontrar mi manera más personal de compartirte un pequeño rayo de sol, una cálida luz de optimismo y un gran abrazo de mi parte y de mi gente desde México. Te aseguro que hablo por todos cuando digo que estamos felices de que estés aquí, esta es tu casa. Espero que esta manta sea un recordatorio de que, aunque la vida puede ser intensa y darnos miedo, el Sol sale para todos, la vida también puede ser hermosa y colorida y alegre. De mi familia para los tuyos, BIENVENIDO!!!

Behind this colorful artwork you can find my most personal way of sharing a bit of sunshine, a light of optimism and a big big hug for you from me and my people in México. I can assure you I speak for all of us when I say we're glad you're here, this is your home. Hope this blanket serves as a reminder that life can be intense and scary, but the sun comes out for everyone, life can be beautiful and colorful and joyful too. From my family to yours, WELCOME!!!!

For each blanket purchased, 3 are donated to IRCO

OVERVIEW

We partnered with 8 artists from around the world to create a series of custom woven blankets featuring artwork based on the theme of ONE HUMANITY : ALL ARE WELCOME. For every blanket purchased, 3 were donated to IRCO to use as a gift of welcome to immigrants and refugees when first arriving in Portland. These blankets provide hope, encouragement, and a sense of equality and belonging to our new neighbors. The artwork for these blankets has come from both near and far to represent the beauty and richness we gain by living in community and learning from people of all different backgrounds, customs and cultures.



Welcome Blankets have been made possible in part by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council
