"Charlie Parker"

This Art Quilt was begin in the late 60's/early 70's as an acrylic painting inspired by a flyer or a Charlie Parker album cover given to me by Charles Mingus.

Charles lived down the street from me then on 5th street on the Lower East side in N.Y. I was the local seamstress at the time and I had delivered some pants I'd altered for him. He and every musician or anybody who had any kind of contact wit Bird always had a wild story to tell about him. Year 2001.

Dimensions: 45" x 52"
plus 12" of dangles
