Call-out for Knitters (and crocheters) to Participate
Whether you knew it or not, The Blanton’s outdoor plaza was built for a knitting extravaganza!
On Saturday, March 5, the museum’s plaza will be turned into a knitted wonderland 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 guest artist and international textile phenomenon Magda Sayeg,
who will lead the project. But, to make this vision a reality we need your help!
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 – 2:30pm. Meet Magda, choose your tree, and let the creativity begin! Knit
works will be installed on the trees on the evening of March 4.
Please RSVP on the Blanton’s Facebook page under the “Events”
