All over the world, fiber mice are forced to work in inhumane conditions. Art establishments perpetuate the prejudice that weaving isn’t art and rodents aren’t artists. Let us knock down the doors of oppression and celebrate fiber mice for who they really are: strong, vital, creative artists! As a beacon for this cause, for the next few months Art Mice will live and weave inside these boxes in protest against the marginalization of fiber mice. Each Art Mouse’s proud praxis will prove that her creativity is inversely proportionate to her size.
