Interwoven Stories: Healing with Music


March 11 to May 10, 2024


Second Floor Technology Center


What does healing with music mean to you? Guided by local artist Diana Weymar, music lovers in Princeton as well as across the U.S. and Canada embroidered their response to this question as an extension of Princeton University Concerts’ “Healing with Music” series of events that sheds light on music’s profound impact. This installation also includes works by Weymar that were directly inspired by the artists and topics presented by the series.

Interwoven Stories is a community-based narrative stitching project conceived and facilitated by Diana Weymar. Founded in Princeton in 2016, Weymar is the creator and curator of Interwoven Stories and the Tiny Pricks Project. In 2016, she launched Interwoven Stories as part of her residency at the Arts Council of Princeton. The project quickly spanned the globe as more than 400 stitchers from across the United States, Canada, and Syria contributed hand-embroidered “pages” to Interwoven Stories.

You can read the “Healing with Music” embroiderers’ statements and learn more about the “Healing with Music” series as well as the Interwoven Stories project by perusing a binder available at the exhibition. You can also explore and purchase an anthology of Interwoven Stories entries to date at the Arts Council of Princeton.
