THE LONGMONT PAPER QUILT
“Longmont” by Eastman is a stitched paper quilt showing the diverse and disparate elements of the land and how people interact with it. Depicting animals and landscapes, but also street plans and city structures, Eastman pulls from Longmont’s agricultural history and its beginnings as the Chicago Colorado Colony. Eastman invited community members to create a multi-media square envisioning their perfect neighborhood, perfect house, or the house they live in currently. The Community Quilt was created using those representations.
