DC: Last Chance for the Crochet Coral Reef Exhibit

Go see the Community Coral Reef at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum! Last chance to view this amazing community craft collaboration is Sunday, April 24th. You can even peep my name on the contributor plaque, I submitted a few crochet coral pieces last year along with the Warm and Fuzzies

The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef Project intersects a traditionally feminine craft with mathematics and conservationism, exhibiting globally to demonstrate the impact climate change has on our oceans. Founded by two kiwi sisters, here's Margaret Wertheim giving an amazing TED talk on their conservation/art work and the geometry behind it.
