Other Information:Community members will crochet small circles that will form a larger public "yarn bomb" art project in October on 7th Avenue in Rock Island . All are invited to this workshop to learn to crochet and participate. Artist Carol Hummel will work with the community on a public art project. College students, senior citizens, high school students and others will work with Hummel to create smaller crocheted pieces, which she will stitch together and install on a campus site for seven months. Hummel has been active in collaborative public art installations in Switzerland, Norway, India, Mexico, and at many cities across the United States. The active portion of the yarn bomb project is slated to begin Aug. 28, when several community partners, including Augustana and the Figge Art Museum, will host workshops. The finished work will remain on view for the entire academic year.
