Bring your friends and family and celebrate the many voices of our communities by dyeing and sewing Sky Sail sculpture fabric with us.

We invite you to learn about the indigo dyeing process, dye a linen, bandana-sized fabric square for our project, and bring your own small cotton or linen piece to dye in our indigo vats.


Thanks goes to GOCA (Galleries of Contemporary Art) at UCCS and Pikes Peak Arts Council for their generous grant support for Sky Sail.

This collaborative suspended sculpture is part of the upcoming We Are the Sky: A GOCA Collaboratory exhibition at the Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery at the ENT Center on campus at UCCS.

We Are the Sky opens July 11, 2024 and runs through October 5, 2024.
