The title piece from PARTY, a body of work by Melissa Yungbluth born out of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yungbluth states, "One day during lock down I took out my loom and began weaving for a creative outlet between teaching online for the first time ever. Shortly thereafter I saw some party decorations and thought, “Hey! This is might make a cool weaving.” What came of this was not only an outlet for the stresses of new working conditions, but a body of work that allowed me to reminisce on social events like birthdays, holiday parties and the like." Dimensions: 46"W x 40"H.
