The Women’s Museum of California and artist Katie Ruiz create a community art installation and the public is invited to participate.

The Pompom project is based on the belief, museum officials said, that art is best with community. The art, which will be made with many small pom poms to create a piece based on the symbol of a woman, will be displayed outside the museum’s education center at the Jacobs Center near Chollas View.

The museum will host virtual pom-pom parties to guide volunteers while remaining socially distant.

The organizers also encourage family participation, as the work will be suitable for all ages.

There are a few steps to participate:

  • Stop at the Jacobs Center, 404 Euclid Ave. and visit the WMC Education Center from 5-6 p.m. Feb. 2 or 10-11 a.m. Feb. 5 to pick up pom-pom kits.
  • Drop off the finished pom poms at the education center from 10 to 11 a.m. on March 5.

The museum also wishes to work with clubs, associations or classes. If you would like to host an in-person pom-pom party in February or March, email [email protected] to find out more.
