#YarnBombQC

4mm Craft Cord
Site Specific Installation
2017
#YarnBombQC brought sculptor Carol Hummel to the Quad Cities to work with our communities to create crocheted, site-specific community-based public art on trees in three locations - Augustana College, the Figge Art Museum and Longfellow Liberal Arts School in Rock Island, Ill and Davenort, Iowa. This project draws diverse sectors of communities together in a positive, celebratory way to help create major pieces of art for the people, by the people. Well over 100 community members participated by creating crocheted circles, which the artist and her assistants stitched together and installed on the trees. Participants included students from Augustana College, the Creative Arts Academy, Longfellow Liberal Arts, Western Illinois University and St. Ambrose University, as well as community members ranging from age 8 to over 80. This project was organizedby the Augustana Teaching Museum of Art and is supported in part by an ArtWorks grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as by the Augustana Art Dept., Augustana College/Longfellow Liberal Arts School Partnership, Augustana Humanities Fun, Augustana Institute for Leadership and Service, the Cretive Arts Academy of the Quad Cities, the Figge Art Museum, and Sunbelt Rentals. Our media sponsor is WVIK.
