An art centre in Galesburg, US is asking residents to look through their dryers and drawers to help out with a new project.
The Galesburg Civic Art Center is searching for odd socks
to help create a community quilt with the help of Studios Midwest resident artist Susan Lenz at the end of this month.
Those interested in their socks becoming part of the beautiful bedding should drop them off on the evening of July 6th.
Sock donations will then be open for collection throughout July at the centre's main building. However, locals are reminded to try and bring in footwear that is clean and in a relatively good condition.
The Studios Midwest Residency Program will be running the project with sponsorship by Blick Art Materials and state agency, the Illinois Art Council.
