Big City Rats Art Quilt

This art quilt titled "Big City Rats" made its public debut at The President's Summer Art Series hosted by Brenau University Galleries (2015). My inspiration for this piece was the 2007 infamous rats-in-the Taco Bell video shot in New York City. Here, fancy rat breeds tower over a glittering urban landscape while their humbler cousins take refuge on its rooftops and in its streets.

Medium:  Fiber (cotton fabrics, tulle, trim, embroidery thread, machine thread, seed beads, sequins) 
Date:  2015
