Diana Weymar | Tiny Pricks Project

October 22 – November 21, 2020
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 22, 2020, 6–8pm

Planthouse is pleased to present Tiny Pricks Project.

Tiny Pricks Project is a public art project created in 2018 and curated by Diana Weymar that is now a collection of over 3,500 pieces. Contributors from around the world are stitching Donald Trump's words into vintage textiles, creating the material record of the language of his presidency and of the movement against it. Tiny Pricks Project holds a creative space in a tumultuous political climate. The collection counterbalances the impermanence of Twitter and other social media, with the textiles that embody warmth, craft, permanence, civility, and a shared history. The daintiness and integrity of each piece stand in stark contrast to his presidency. 

The pieces in the special collection for Planthouse Gallery are either part of the Tiny Pricks Project or from Diana Weymar Studio. 

All masks in this collection are Art Masks and not personal PPE.
