Deadline is extended to November 4!!!

You wanted more time, you've got it! Start a blanket, finish a blanket, start another blanket, spread the word! Create in quiet contemplation, or as part of a community group.

The enthusiasm and dedication for Welcome Blanket have been amazing so far. We want the momentum to keep going. So, we are making time and space to include more work and more voices in this project. That includes YOUR work and YOUR voice.

Please send your blanket/note as soon as you can to help build the installation that is already underway. The Smart Museum of Art will make every effort to include blankets sent by the November 4 deadline in the exhibition. Blankets received between November 4 and December 17 will not be exhibited but will still be distributed to resettlement programs.

Thank you to our wonderful partners at the Smart Museum of Art who are making this extension possible.
