Come visit us during school vacation week! Explore the galleries and create art together in the Bank of America Art Lab with art-making activities for visitors of all ages.

Threads of Connection will be open 11 AM–4 PM during on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of February school vacation week. Admission on Presidents’ Day (Monday, February 17) will be free for all.

The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA) has invited local fiber artist Merill Comeau to create an interactive installation and project in the museum’s Bank of America Art Lab with the debut of Threads of Connection, opening February 15.

Comeau creates artwork that combines and layers hundreds of hand painted and printed repurposed textiles. Through this labor of love, Comeau stitches together stories of cultures, individuals, and relationships into dynamic and sprawling fiber works.

Threads of Connection is a wall-sized tapestry installation that recognizes the building of community found within the age-old practice of gathering to assemble fabric pieces in quilting bees.

Contributions from visitors will be added to the tapestry regularly, creating a constantly growing reflection of the community.

Threads of Connection will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12–4 PM, from February 15 through June 21. The activity is free for all visitors with museum admission.
