We have a beautiful exhibit hanging in Gallery 543 at the Navy Yard right now that consists of flags by artist Emily Manalo Ruiz . The main portion of the exhibit is the “1000 Works Project”, which consists of 1000 small fabric flags, each of which are unique, sewn out of salvaged materials and inspired by old battle flags. The exhibit also includes some of her larger flags, also made with reclaimed materials, that are text-based and printed with meaningful, personal phrases. “Art, for me, is cathartic.
