The Harriet Tubman mural is part of the Love Across the USA crochet project by Olek, an internationally recognized crochet artist whose work often amplifies the voices of women. It was crocheted by over 150 community volunteers who completed 2 ft x 2ft squares. Olek’s goal is to create a large scale mural in every state, celebrating a strong female figure from each location. For the state of New York, she chose two women: Harriet Tubman in Auburn, and Susan B. Anthony in Rochester. Auburn, NY is the first city in the country to complete the project.
