*UPDATE as of June 8, 2015*

The purpose of this page is to promote an art project that engages women around the world by contributing a small piece to a large art installation. The goal for this project is for at least 100 women to crochet one or more of these wisteria vines and submit them for display in an installation that will be shown in an exhibition that opens on May 1 at Lovebomb in Richmond, VA, USA. The aim of this project is to showcase the strength and individuality of the women who participate. That is why the color of yarn and length of the vine are left to the discretion of the participants. Each woman submitted one index card with their name and hometown on it and the cards will be compiled in a book that will be displayed alongside the installation.
This project is the capstone piece of the artist, Amy Reader’s, time as an undergraduate student and is a part of her Honors Thesis Exhibition at the University of Richmond. The time for submissions has closed. Please check back for pictures of the final installation after May 1, 2015.
