Project 1 artist asks for local fabric, helpers


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Amanda Browder pours her heart into her sewing, and part of what she displays is the heart of the community where her works are displayed.

The Brooklyn, New York-based artist produces huge fabric artworks for building exteriors and other public sites.

"I call myself a large-scale fabric installation artist. I drape fabrics on the sides of buildings using donated fabrics from the town that I work in," Browder explained.

As one of the featured artists for ArtPrize's first Project 1 experiment, Browder plans to cover three buildings in Grand Rapids using fabrics donated from people in West Michigan.
