Foreclosure Quilts by Kathryn Clark

29th November 2012

Kathryn Clark calls her Foreclosure Quilts an “historical record of difficult times.”

The above is “A map of the Forest Hills neighborhood in Cleveland, OH. The navy rectangles represent foreclosed or abandoned lots. The green applique patches show where community gardens have been planted on top of empty lots.”

    Sad, but also hopeful at the same time. Love the analogy of the fabric of a community — awkward, unfinished seams and all — being held together by threads. I’m also hopeful that the gardens, joint efforts of many, will make this “quilt” more beautiful over time.

    Maybe you could do some “blight” quilts for the many neighborhoods in new orleans that are still dilapidated from Katrina…
