Margaret Cusack is searching for two pieces of stitched artwork which are missing. Both pieces of art were in the same box. They were last seen on May 2, 2008 at the shipping company office in Maspeth, New York. The shipping company had last listed it as “on vehicle for delivery” but it was not delivered and it is no longer in their system.
The first, “Absolut Pennsylvania,” was commissioned by Absolut Vodka to use as an advertising poster. In the center is the Absolut Vodka bottle in yellow with hand-embroidered, blue lettering. Above the bottle are the words, Absolut Pennsylvania. The stitched image is very quilt-like. The colors are yellow, red, and blue. The bold yellow diamond shapes include symbols of Pennsylvania including a pretzel, the Liberty Bell, a guitar, an I-beam (for the steel industry), a folk art weather vane, etc. This stitched artwork is 28″ by 34″, and it is labeled on the back of the framed artwork with Margaret’s information and the artwork’s title. It is framed in a white wooden frame and the front of the artwork is protected with plexiglas.
If you’ve seen either of these pieces of stitched artwork, please contact Margaret Cusack at email@example.com.
