Calling All Artists! Could Your Work Be Featured on This Gorgeous Blanket?

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown February 27th, 2017 Last Updated on: February 27th, 2017

I've been dreaming of one day owning one of these beautiful blankets from Eighth Generation!

In case you're not familiar Eighth Generation is a popular Native owned business based out of Seattle, Washington. Louie Gong is the founder and owner of the business, and takes great pride in showcasing not just his own art but other Indigenous artists across the country. While his own work merges traditional Coast Salish art with popular culture, he has featured artists with different styles such as Acoma Pueblo artist Michelle Lowden and Sarah Agaton Howes, an Ojibwe artist and teacher who specializes in floral designs.

Once again he is looking for fresh new artists to work with and this time it's to find an artist to design their next wool blanket. Think you have what it takes to design a spectacular blanket? Watch the below video and find out more!

Other Considerations
