Hug Series (First Series of 3)

This work was created for the Greenleaf Art Center in Chicago's Be Mine show over the 2015 Valentine's day holiday. These three 'blankets' are meant to simulate an embrace as one swaddles themselves in it.  When wearing it, one is embraced by the intent that one is thinking of them and giving them warmth.

These are prototypes for a project for homeless populations, either as a fundraiser or as direct aid.
