The COVID-19 pandemic encouraged many to try their hand at making masks -- either for their own use or to donate to others. Using material and natural objects to create beautiful and functional pieces of art is a way of life for Indianapolis fabric artist Abi Ogle.

WFYI’s Jill Ditmire recently spoke over the phone with Ogle about the changes the public health crisis is making in her life -- as an artist and about the sudden popularity of sewing.

Ogle is working on large scale, postcard-like paintings depicting scenes from the Harrison Center. They will be displayed as art yard signs near the corner of 10th and Delaware streets, for people to enjoy by car, or on foot at a safe social distance.
