Jan. 5 update:  The Jan. 4 workshop turnout was excellent.  A room full of enthusiastic participants worked on different tasks for this project.  Making plarn is easy and fun. Come learn how at the next event and maybe try your hand at crochet as well while meeting new people and helping to create a work of public art for our community.
The Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture’s first artist-in-residence project brings highly regarded sculptor and fiber artist Michelle Lougee to town; many community partners are contributing to make the residency a success, especially the Arlington Public Library, which is contributing a home for the project at the Fox Library.
Working through June 2020, Michelle will create a large-scale collaborative public art project with the community for the Minuteman Bikeway. You are invited to learn how to crochet with “plarn” — a yarn made from recycled plastic bags — and contribute to a collaborative work with a message: if we all work together we can create beauty and protect the environment!
