My “Living Quilt for Santa Rosa” public art installation with handmade paper and seeds for wildflowers in the pulp continues to change over time since it was installed on November 25, 2018, at Rincon Ridge Park in the Fountaingrove area of Santa Rosa. This project was one of four projects awarded a grant from the City of Santa Rosa public art department during the first round of Calls for Fire Response public art projects. This installation was created with the participation of local volunteers, and it is bringing new life to this area of Santa Rosa that was devastated by the wildfires of October 2017. The wildflowers should continue to grow, and hopefully they will bloom in a few weeks. The weather has been sunny and warm, and many trees and flowers are already starting to bloom in Santa Rosa, CA.
These photos show the art installation on January 28, 2019. Some wildflowers are about 4 – 6 inches tall now!
