This month’s meeting features speaker Maday Delgado, an art educator, published artist, and sustainability enthusiast. Join us at Rush Oak Park Hospital at 2pm on May 21, 2023 for a rich conversation about how you can experiment with sustainable techniques.

Maday is committed to bringing innovation and artistry to the forefront of the work she creates. Her mission is to nurture artistic platforms across cultures and generations to foster creative work, while finding ways to minimize our environmental footprint.

Learning from cultural textile traditions and exchanging powerful stories continues to be a source of inspiration that Maday hopes to share with all. Her goal is to unify students with different skill sets and share her love of art and vibrant textiles in a sustainable manner. She has a desire for traditions across cultures and generations to lead sustainable lives and encourage collaboration, connection and creativity in our communities. 

Maday combines paint, weaving, hand-stitching (her favorite) and machine sewing and embroidery to infuse her creations with energy, paying homage to her Cuban upbringing. She loves the art of collaging and storytelling with new and pre-loved textiles.
