2017 (80″x48″x1/6″, glass beads)

Based upon a winter pine forest scene, captured close to home, this shawl is almost seven feet wide and four feet tall, approximating a typical human wingspan. It is made of 168,603 glass beads in shades of blue and white, individually hand strung on a loom over a six month period. It has not been weighed, but is an estimated 30-40 pounds.

This piece will be shown at the Grand Rapids Police Department in Michigan as part of ArtPrize Nine (2017), September 13th through October 8th. For visitors participating in public voting, the vote code is 65203. Your support is appreciated!

This project is partially aided with funds provided by the Michigan Lottery matching grant challenge via ArtPrize.org.
