Colorful Nests in Trees

Here is a sample of what I will be doing at the Potash Corp Children's Festival as Artist in Residence. Prior to the festival I will be creating 300 or so wire nests in beautiful colors to install in trees in the park. I am creating the nest with my students.  The caretaker at my school is helping with the organizing of the wire, which is great. It is a huge job just to prepare the materials.

I am also hoping to install nests in trees along Broadway Ave as a compliment to my exhibition at the Affinity Gallery.  I like to have my students participate in my exhibitions.

The children's festival will be having a tent where people visiting the park can make their own nest.
