My “Living Quilt” installation in Newnan, Georgia, continues to change, and more plants are appearing. These photos taken by Newnan artist Bette Hickman show the latest transformation of the handmade paper quilt with wildflower seeds in the paper pulp. The work was installed on August 31 at the end of my artist-in-residency at Newnan Art Rez (www.newnanartist.org)
I will continue to post photos here sent in by local residents. Hopefully the wildflowers will bloom in a few months before frost. The “bed” with a headboard and footboard made with local branches and vines will last for many years.
