In May of 2021 visual artist and Creative Director of the Far North Quilt Trail Somer Hahm partnered with the Cook Inlet Housing Authority to create and install a mini barn quilt trail for the residents of the Centennial Villages in Anchorage, Alaska. A project that focused on relieving residents feelings of isolation during the pandemic, the artist engaged the residents with a collaborative, and community focused creative intervention that took the shape of a small quilt trail between the three gardens in the retirement village.

 

These paintings are available to the general public for viewing and enjoying!
