THE APRON PROJECT

 

The inspiration for this project is a personal recognition of the working class hero. The symbolism of the apron as an offering of service to who we are. The respect of this outer garment can be reflected in how it is put on.  A slight bowing of the head, a genuflect in honor of the work we do when taking the vows of our daily chores.

I will be exhibiting THE APRON PROJECT at March 18th, 19th, 20th
