Description or Artist's Statement
Installation (late October 2017) In late October, Carol Hummel returned to the Quad Cities with two assistants, Molly Sedensky and Julie Loxterman, to stitch the community members' circles together and cover 11 trees: one at Longfellow Elementary School, one at Augustana College, and 9 at the Figge Art Museum. At Augustana, they were assisted by two members of the College's facilities crew: Dave Apple and Brett Stabler.
Unveiling Reception (29 October 2017) With the project complete, we celebrated all the hard work of our volunteer crocheters, artist, and assistants.
