Width: 8" Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: I used cotton, burlap, twine, buttons and cotton threads. This folk art quilt of the Adinkra symbol for "hope" is constructed with orange cotton fabric with stars and then appliquéd to a burlap foundation and outlined in striped cotton and braided twine to remind the viewer of a simpler time. Adinkra are visual symbols, originally created by the Akan of Ghana and the Gyaman of Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa, that represent concepts or aphorisms.

Artist Statement: My father has dementia and I would not have success with his care without the support of Alzheimer’s organizations and research to improve his treatment.
