Crochet Coral Reef...

This is a photo of a window display that features artwork that I pass daily on East 10th Street and Broadway here in New York. The soft sculpture is a sampling from the show Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef. Apparently these pieces were created as a reaction to global warming and the accelerated destruction of the world's coral reefs. CLICK HERE to learn more about it. CLICK HERE for the New York Times article.

That looks so lovely, like remember the large crocheted Octopus in Pier 40 exhibit?

Hey Alba! I was tempted to put a picture up of the Octopus that we saw next to the reef picture with a caption that read, "Do you think he lives near here?" Ha, ha, ha!

It was good seeing you! I hope you get into the program, so that you can come to New York and pal around at more art exhibits on Piers. But really Alba, you'll have to learn to budget your time better. ;-) I can't be expected to wait around in the cold with my shaved head all day, all the time.

OH DEAR ANDREW, I LOVE YOU ENDLESSLY for putting up with my time-budgeting crisis. Thanks for lodging me around and not making fun of me too much!! *hugs*
