Hand Built: A Communitywide Picnic
July 16, 2012
On Sunday, July 15, a 10,000-square-foot art piece, which resembled a giant picnic blanket, was assembled on the south lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The project, Hand Built: A Communitywide Picnic, started last January when local artist Alison Heryer organized workshops across the metro and invited the public to stamp and stencil 5-foot-by-4-foot fabric panels. On Sunday, everyone who had participated, plus many more, assembled the panels to create a giant ground cover for a group picnic. The event also featured family-friendly entertainment and activities.
