Burge explains “Make Your Mark” in her own words below.

“Fill in the circles, mark an X or O, punch holes through the card; there are a variety of methods to make a mark on a ballot. The important thing is that you make your mark and make it count…vote! All the fabrics used in this piece were created by me using Indigo or Procion dyes.”
