The Barn Quilt Project

The Barn Quilt Project: South Dakota Strong, a 2022 public arts-in-health project led by Vermillion Cultural Association and Creative Care, LLC, receives national recognition with a display in the CDC Museum in Atlanta, GA. The Barn Quilt Project is one six selected from 30 CDC Foundation grant recipients for exhibition.

Through a unique partnership between public health and the arts, the Vermillion Cultural Association (VCA) together with Creative Care, LLC were among 30 arts and culture organizations that received support from the CDC Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts to develop works of art to educate the public and inspire confidence in COVID-19 vaccines.

The participating organizations used their chosen art forms to translate public health information about the safety and importance of immunizations into an accessible, memorable and diverse body of work. An exhibition at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum in Atlanta, Georgia, titled “Trusted Messengers: Building Confidence in COVID-19 Vaccines Through Art,” is now showcasing original pieces from six of these organizations, including VCA and Creative Care’s “The Barn Quilt Project: South Dakota Strong.”
