*UPDATE as of January 1, 2020*
This project is no longer accepting submissions.
The project is looking for a permanent home (or homes!)
A section of the project was installed in Fort Mill, SC at a cooperative preschool. The rest of the vines are still looking for a permanent home – if you represent an organization that might be a good fit for a portion of the project, have them fill out this form!
This project was on view again! A selection of vines from this project were on view at C3 Labs in Charlotte, NC in the fall of 2019.

The purpose of this page is to promote the #100womenproject, an art project that engages women around the world by contributing a small piece to a large art installation. The goal for this project was for at least 100 women to crochet one or more of these wisteria vines and submit them for installation.
During the open submission period, over 500 women from 25+ countries crocheted and submitted approximately 2500 vines.
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 are displayed alongside the installation.
This project started as 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 and a partial installation of the project can be viewed at C3 Labs in Charlotte, NC.
