Riverwork Project

Riverwork Project is a panoramic textile artwork comprised of separate panels that together form 100 feet of pliable sections of sewn, layered, hand-stenciled and painted cloth. Referencing human and water resources, the Riverwork Project blends geometry, symbols and color to highlight cultural meanings of shared experiences.

Artist Sun Smith-Foret conceived the idea to reflect the region’s diverse population and individual human experiences with a monumental-scale textile piece that involved more than 100 artists from a variety of ages, race, experiences, and cultural backgrounds. Each artist contributed a small, themed segment which was then integrated into the artwork. Themes from the artists include immigration, cotton production, transportation, music, dreams, film, and memories. Photography, painting, and hand-sewing embellish the surface of the textiles.

Riverwork Project is now on display at St. Louis Lambert International Airport through May 12, 2019
