Crochet Coral Reef

Today I saw this video preview of the crochet coral reef exhibit to be displayed at Florida Craftsmen in St Petersburg, FL.

This exhibit will be on display from June 8th through September 1st.  I cannot wait to see this in person!

 This project is a satellite of the worldwide Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef Project created by Margaret and Christine Wertheim of the Institute For Figuring.  The project was created to unify science and art while bringing attention to the plight of the coral reefs.

 “Over 270 people have created thousands of crocheted coral, shells, fish, eels, rays and so many more incredible forms. The finished reef will fill the 1200 sf exhibition gallery with some fun surprises in store.” says the website for the Florida Craftsmen.
