I’m thrilled to share the news that Mendelssohn has been selected for inclusion in the special exhibit Festival Awareness Project 2013: It’s Raining Cats and Dogs which opens October 31 in Houston and will be on view through November 3.
This is the second year of a three-year IQF project intended to throw the spot light on the plight of homeless cats and dogs. Last year a hand full of art quilts depicting animals was hung in Houston and fabric postcards were sold to raise money for local animal shelters. This year’s exhibit of 30 art quilts will travel through 2014 to various IQF-sponsored shows.
I’ll miss having this quilt in my home but the cause is worthy and I’m excited to help bring awareness to it. And, after all, the real Mendelssohn will be here to keep me company. He’s 13 now!
