A passionate advocate for generating positive interaction between diverse community members of all ages and abilities, Lizzy Rockwell co-founded a non-profit project called “Peace by Piece:The Norwalk Community Quilt Project” in the city of Norwalk, CT using quiltmaking as a tool to bring people together. An intergenerational after school art program whose mission is to mentor young people through the craft of quilt making, participants range in age from 8 to 83. Her lecture follows the development of her public quilt projects, communal works of art that are created for fundraising purposes or as installations in public institutions. Come be inspired by the beauty, craft and story of these quilts sewn together by ordinary folks led by the extraordinary Lizzy.
