Monumental cloth banners feature abstract designs that combine patterns, drawing styles, and print techniques with personal memories to create a stunning display. The abstractions are intended to showcase the primitive desire in all of us: to be remembered, to prove that "we were here." O'Brien lead a family-friendly art activity workshop for all ages where participants, with inspiration from what they saw at PLAY/GROUND, were inspired to create their own art!
