Yona Harvey Collaboration

Yona Harvey Collaboration


CSA PGH invited poet Yona to collaborate on an editioned beach towel for the share. After writing several pieces, we chose a set of three “Seaside Tinctures” for the edition. One is highlighted on the towel, and the full set can be seen on the packaging.  Each towel is dip-dyed and printed with the poem, reading “The Sea, mi amor. The sea.”
