Hooked at Long Island Museum, Stony Brook, NY
Hooked at Long Island Museum is a community-based public art project that is a collaboration between artist Carol Hummel, LIM and some 200 community volunteers. Volunteers made more than 4,000 crocheted pieces of various sizes and colors produced from an estimated 250,000 feet of 4mm craft cord. Carol installed the pieces with the help of her assistant Molly Sedensky, family members, and residents that enjoyed scaling the heights of the trees. This project, like much of the art of Hummel, draws diverse sectors of communities together in a positive, celebratory way to help create major pieces of art for the people, by the people. Completed in summer 2015, the artwork will be on display for 2 to 3 years depending on weather.
