Wendy Osher has taken our reef of crocheted plastic bags out for another public appearance!
"October 9 -11, 2011 our reef was on view for 2,000 participants at Aashe, an international sustainability in higher education conference, to check out.

I showed visitors how to crochet plastic bags and quite a few gave it a try. One insightful person remarked on how the piece ‘draws one in as a kind of Dr. Suessical landscape, then once one’s attention is captured the dark reality of the eco-underpinnings hit even harder…’”

I had the opportunity a couple weeks ago to meet with Wendy Osher, the artist behind Something in the Water, which will be on display as part of the Too Shallow for Diving: The 21st Century is Treading Water exhibit at the American Jewish Museum through July.  I can’t even tell you how exciting it was to see something that I crocheted as part of a piece of art displayed in a museum!!
