I attended one or more different places of worship in Pittsburgh every week until I reached my goal of 100. I chose temples, churches, synagogues and mosques in various neighborhoods. I made a white dress. I wore this dress to every worship place visit. In response to each visit (in my own studio between visits), I added pieces of fabric and/or embroidery to the dress; with my accumulation of experiences, it grew and changed in appearance. 

Gatherings, dress. 48 digital photos of appearance of dress from visit #1 at upper left to #100 at bottom right.
2010-2011     fabric and mixed media    50"h x 19 1/2"w x 12"d
