Slideshow: Art Along the Beltline on Creative Loafing

Creative Loafing has a great slideshow featuring each art installation along the Beltline. I particularly love the Living Walls mural in Reynoldstown. But there are so many creative, talented people participating this year. It’s a big honor for us to be part of it all.


We Heart Sweet Peach

Our friend Pam has a discerning eye and a passion for design – and the photography and writing skills to match. Recently she started Sweet Peach, a new website that celebrates the artistry of the South. It’s so fabulous, you should bookmark it. Visually delightful!

Pam visited our Communitree installation on the Beltline last week and worked her usual photo magic to showcase our pieces. Here’s Pam’s Beltline Knitterati article on Sweet Peach. Thanks Pam! We’re so glad you and your site are in our lives. Yay SE ┬ádesign!

And We’re In!

Took two days, lots of people, sturdy needles, great weather and some patience, but the Commuknitree project is in.

The Commuknitree Grove ... All In!

To enjoy it in person, which we highly recommend. Pictures are good, but they really don’t do it justice.

From 75/85
Take I-20 west to Exit 54 – Langhorn Street
Take a right off the exit and then take the first right you can (if you stay straight, the road dead ends)
At the stop sign take a LEFT onto Westview Drive
Take an immediate LEFT onto Napoleon Drive
Drive to cul-de-sac and park
You’ll see the path to the beltline off the cul-de-sac, handily marked with an orange and purple “you’re in the right place” tree!

It’s Happening! Phase 1 Install

Britt isn’t going to be able to make it for the official installation day next weekend. We took advantage of his early timeline to get some of his awesome pieces up (he probably has 15 or so total, earning him the nickname Britterati) and to go ahead and get a jump on all the pieces Sandy and I finished installed as well.

Buried cable: a cheeky favorite so far
