Over and Under at Wheaton College
Last Thursday was the finale of my tenure as a Visiting Artist at Wheaton College. The project Over and Under: Weaving Together the Fabric of Our Community was a semester long collaboration where student groups and faculty worked together on a large scaffold weave. Individuals donated personal items to be woven into the tapestry resulting in a final collage of colorful individuals coming together as a whole.
The large scaffold weave was designed to be portable and was installed at either in the Balfour Center or the new Science Center cafe area. This increased the visibility and accessibility to many different student groups.
We removed the weave from the frame and installed it between the two balconies in the student center. It will remain there until graduation. A beautiful emblem to the spirit of Wheaton!
