Everyone Has a Name

Quilts, featuring “Sweet Land of Liberty” by The Domestic (Terrorism) Arts Group

Naomi Spinak’s “Everyone Has a Name” features four fiber works. The central piece of the show is an American flag piece entitled “Sweet Land of Liberty” that has guns instead of stars and is a memorial to the many people killed by guns in mass shootings since Columbine. The names and dates are embroidered by hand by many volunteers including the artist. Each gun depicted also has an English phrase on it, which is connected to arms use, such as ”Sweating Bullets” and “Riding Shotgun.” The show is Naomi’s personal commentary on the state of guns in our country. “Quilts are my primary medium as a fiber artist, and I feel compelled to comment on our culture and our values through my work.”
