Here is a summary of our project:
“Materialized Magic: Mythical Creatures in a Yarn Artistry Habitat” celebrates the mythical and magical, bringing magic into daily life, and weaving two individual artistic visions with a communal vision. Materialized Magic is a fiber art exhibit of three-dimensional, mythical, fiber creatures by artists Stacy Cantrell and Erika Cleveland. Materialized Magic is also a collaborative process, involving the community in the creation, assembling, installation and de-installation of woodland, water and sky habitats for our mythical creatures.
We offer structured weekly “yarn-bombing” sessions to create crocheted, knitted and felted habitat elements. For example, we will create a large tree with flowers, leaves and vines, joining individual pieces made separately by the community. The project reaches out to nursing/retirement homes, local fiber stores, community centers and visitors to the Torpedo Factory (where Erika is an exhibiting artist), and the Arlington Arts Center.
The project culminates in an art exhibit at the Arlington Arts Center on June 25th of the large-scale mythical creatures along with the yarn bomb habitat. There will be related festivities and events.”
