While I was at the Shemer Art Center, I browsed the current show about Fiber Art. I especially liked this piece called Crocodile Crozier by Carol Eckert.
She states that this shirt appears to be a entry level workers food workers uniform and it was found early in 2009 when the nation was headed into an economic crisis. The artist, Ann Morton states that finding it at that period of time makes a poignant statement about what was happening in the nation.
She has cut star shapes from the fabric and left some connected to the garments framework and other individual stars are on the floor below it.
