From June 1st through July 17th, the Governor’s Island site of ArtCrawl Harlem’s 2022 Boundaries & Connections Residency House hosts the installation, Much Needed Love, by fiber artist/designer Cat Schmitz. This art installation, open to the public, pushes the boundaries of materiality with sculptures present created with a range of media, incorporating rugs, quilts and even cement.

The sculptures’ forms and colors are curvilinear and free flowing, inviting guests of all bakgrounds into the space to form their own connections in lightness and joy. This exuberant installation welcomes visitors to explore their own connection to space and shape at the ArtCrawl Harlem house on the Colonel’s Row section of Governor’s Island.
