"How We Handle Secrets" by Karen Tauches- read on BURNAWAY, read on Scout Mob

As part of a Flux Projects event, Louisiana artist and teacher Jes Schrom invited the public to a sewing circle at Young Blood Gallery on Saturday, August 20, 2011. Participants donated several hours each to sit and carefully embroider a secret or two from our community. Some of Schrom’s Secrets of Atlanta were strikingly cathartic: “I’m probably gay;” “My dad doesn’t like me;” and “I lie about my age.” Others were funnier: “I am tempted to touch art at museums.”
