Picking up the Pieces: Residential School Memories and the Making of the Witness Blanket unfolds a new kind of blanket. Carey Newman, master carver and sculptor turned storyteller, and co-writer Kirstie Hudson have woven together in book form the creation story behind his monumental art installation. Breathtaking in scale and complexity, the blanket itself is a multi-panelled, three-dimensional traveling art installation. Soul-stirring in impact, it is an intricate quilting together of material objects, each one telling a piece of Canada’s residential school story, from coast to coast to coast.
