The year was 2000. I was in undergrad at East Carolina, deep in the throes of my textile and art education program. I wasn't cheering, or coaching.
But when 'Bring it On' came out- I was psyched.
And I watched it. Many, many times.
Sure, it was super cheesy...but it showed CHEERLEADING. Not only that, but they were really tumbling and stunting...performing actual cheer routines.
To pay tribute to this movie, beloved by many cheerleaders (old and young!) I created this piece to represent the two main characters, from different worlds but united by their love for the sport.
