Located inside the Port Authority south building is artist Kevin Lustik’s needlepoint installation In Stitches. Lustik began his career as a quilter before moving on to original needlepoint and cross-stitch designs. 

Filling two large glass cases, In Stitches incorporates beads, buttons, thread, yarn, and needles to create various 3-D art pieces reflecting on the artist’s unique sense of humor.

In Stitches can be viewed through January 2022.
