Living Quilt for Santa Rosa

“Living Quilt for Santa Rosa” is a public art project by artist Jane Ingram Allen that was installed on Nov. 25, 2018 and funded by a grant from the City of Santa Rosa, CA. This video shows the progress of the “quilt” from installation to blooming flowers over 6 plus months. The photos are by Timothy S. Allen. This installation consists of a handmade paper quilt in the flying gees pattern that was installed on a bed of soil with a headboard and footboard of woven branches. Many local volunteers helped to make the quilt and install it. The handmade paper dissolves as mulch and the seeds sprout and grow to produce a living quilt.
