The Blanton Museum of Art
On Saturday March 5, the museum's plaza will be turned into a knitted wonderland! This is in conjunction with the University of Texas' annual open house, Explore UT. All 99 trees will be covered in works of yarn. This extraordinary concept is the vision of the guest artist and international textile phenomenon Magda Sayeg, who will lead the project. Sponsor a tree and be part of the largest yarn artwork on the UT campus! To learn more and sign up for a tree come to the Community Meeting on Saturday , January 8, from 1-2:30 pm in the Blanton Auditorium. Meet Magda, choose your tree, and let the creativity begin. Knit works will be installed on the trees on the evening of March 4th. I know the Austin Fiber Artists will be sponsoring @ least 1 tree. Cant wait!
