Ellen Lesperance's Interactive Sweater Project

Ellen Lesperance's Interactive Sweater Project

Congratulations and Celebrations, the interactive project by artist Ellen Lesperance gives you an opportunity to wear the sweater designed and knit by the artist that is currently on exhibit at the Armory. Emblazoned with a battle axe, the sweater can be worn by anyone who wishes to engage in a personal act of courage.

If you would like to participate in this project, contact us at and tell us what you would plan to do with the sweater. More information is available on Instagram at congratulationsandcelebrations, or visit the project’s website at
