For Kids & Families: Exploring Costume & Textiles

Community Bojagi Project

RSS iTunes

bojagi is a traditional Korean wrapping cloth used to wrap gifts, important documents, and other items. From February to June, 2014, over 1,700 people collaborated to create the Boone Children's Gallery Community Bojagi. By coloring, painting and sewing fabric pieces together, participants were able to work together, share stories, learn new skills and most importantly, be part of something extraordinary. 

The Community Bojagi is displayed in the Boone Children’s Gallery for all to see. This project was made possible by a grant from The John B. and Nelly Llanos Kilroy Foundation.
