  • Erin Lavelle updated the Artwork Nighttime Post
    Nighttime Post, a collaboration between artists Anthony Chapin and Erin Lavelle, is a participatory art project that illuminates the bond between strangers, hand-delivering messages by bicycle from citizen to unknown citizen throughout the night. Nighttime Post invites audiences to offer up dreams to each other and their shared surroundings. Messages pass slowly through the night – from the heart and mind to the mouth, the ear, the typewriter, the bicycle and finally the hands of the recipie…

  • Kitchen Time Capsule was part of Artists in the Kitchen, in which 50 local teams of all-women artists/chef-restaurateurs joined forces in an innovative partnership where chefs inspired artists to create new textile-based artworks, culminating in an exhibition. I was partnered with Kara Doucette of Yelp MSP. Our discussions focused on the importance of community engagement in our work as Yelp Community Manager and Public Artist.

  • Erin Lavelle updated the Artwork Breathe
    Breathe brings to life the energy centers that exist within our human bodies in the form of the chakra system. In this visual representation, the chakras appear out of balance in two of the figures, and then in balance on the figure who practices conscious breathing, a component of meditation. We aim to bring attention to the energy and power within our own beings, and promote the ability of using conscious breath as a means to regain balance amidst the backdrop of the surrounding urban landscap…

  • Erin Lavelle updated the Artwork doing

As I have an overarching goal of ‘doing with less’ and practicing ‘mindfulness,’ this project evokes those themes related to the care for our garments, our environment, and ourselves. Doing was an extended fiber arts practice - a sewin…
  • Erin Lavelle updated the Artwork Altar to G-ma Ruby
    In this ofrenda I invited gallery-goers to honor my grandmother's 70-year sewing career by making their own alterations to a dress on the wall. G-ma Ruby retired at 89 and lived to be 96. The dress, along with the sewing notions, belonged to her. Pictured is a participant making some of the first stitches on opening night.
