Murrysville artist's silk-screened quilts on exhibit throughout Pittsburgh

These panels are from a larger quilt titled “Sweetness & Sorrow,” part of Murrysville artist Patty Kennedy-Zafred’s “American Portraits” collection, which takes photos from the Library of Congress and silkscreens them onto vintage feed bags as well as hand-dyed fabric.

Murrysville artist Patty Kennedy-Zafred can remember seeing the heartbreaking photographs shot by Lewis Hine in the early 1900s, documenting working conditions for juveniles for the National Child Labor Committee.
