Quilt of 47 flags pays tribute to UA’s foreign scholars
A 17-foot long and six-foot tall quilt made of 47 flags honors the various countries of UA's international students.
The quilt project had its genesis in the when Graduate Student Council representatives asked Beth Waltrip, assistant director of operations for UA’s Student Union, to find a way to honor the various countries of UA’s international students.
“A quilt of flags from dozens of countries would be a work of art as well as a tribute to our international students,” she says. There are about 4,000 international students from approximately 95 countries at UA, many of them graduate students so she narrowed the criteria for the quilt to those countries from which two or more UA students hailed and was left with a manageable 47 nations.
Waltrip called on UA’s School of Family and Consumer Sciences and Peg Bingham, an adjunct faculty member, put a call out to students for assistance. Natalie Mallinak, who is majoring in fashion merchandising, spent hundreds of hours working on the quilt which will be displayed in the Student Union. “Just the idea of being part of this project – of honoring our international students and having my work displayed in the Student Union is better than I could have ever imagined,” says Natalie.
