A couple of times recently I’ve run into community art projects collecting the work of a bunch of individual artists.
The first one shown here is in the windows of local alternative community school that focuses on at-risk students, and provides extra attention to help them get through high school.
Students made these clay heads in all kinds of forms, with a ton of interesting expressions.
Here’s a second window display.
And a few individual pieces.
Meanwhile, near my local farmers market at Christmastime a group of crochet artists contributed squares to large Christmas “tree” about ten feet tall.
Meanwhile, a lamp post near me was also swathed in squares. I don’t know for sure if it was part of the group, but it seems likely it’s connected.
