The art of Branda Mangum, a master quilter based in Northern Florida, was exhibited in 2010 at Wm Turner gallery in Atlanta in the "Surrealist Next Door," curated by Morse. Soon afterwards, he and Mangum began collaborating on a new work based on a design by Morse but entirely left to the interpretation and execution of Mangum. The result pulls together a composition of 784 four-inch cloth squares bespeaking the color spectrum overlaid with a "pedestrian crossing" appliqué of black and white squares that echo the hues and values of the background colors.
