It is great to see these photos of my public artwork “Guns into Flowers” that is sited at South Natomas Community Center Park, Sacramento, California. This project was done in cooperation with Natomas Charter School Academy of Performing and Fine Arts, during a 3 -week artist-in-residency during February and March.  It was installed on March 16, 2019. The seeds in the handmade paper quilt are for wildflowers in the same colors and pattern, and the handmade paper quilt has a gun motif to transform those “guns” into flowers in a few more months. One of the students that I worked with at the school is continuing to take photos of the artwork as it changes over time. It is great to have the photos to continue documenting this piece, and I will continue to post them as I receive them.  These photos were received on May 1, 2019, and I am sure they will be sending more photos soon.   There has been only a little rain in Sacramento, and the people there have also been watering the quilt to help the seeds germinate and the seedings grow.  Thanks to everyone for all the help.
