Spring Comes Early
A collaborative, community Installation for Sticks, Hooks, and the Mobius: Knit and Crochet Go Cerebral exhibition
Another collaborative, multi-event project is “Spring Comes Early.” Huxley will begin the project by knitting a vine based on an endangered Pennsylvania plant, Lonicera hirsute, commonly called the Eaton hairy honeysuckle. Starting in a pot at the reception desk, the vine will crawl over and around the desk, up the window and wall and into the lobby of the Williams Center for the Arts. Visitors are invited to knit or crochet fanciful or anatomically/botanically correct flowers, leaves, bugs and birds which Huxley will affix to the vine during the exhibition. There are lots of opportunities for collaboration, workshops, and public participation for all skill levels and ages!
