A whimsical wonderland....


If I were in Austin, Texas, at this moment...a walk down this whimsical path would be on top of my to-do list. But as luck would have it, I am a little over 8,000 miles away in Delhi!
This unique installation, led by textile artist Magda Sayeg covers trunks of all 99 trees that line the path to the Blanton Museum of Art, with colorful knitting yarns crafted by over 170 local volunteer knitters....

Since spring has only just set in...the colorful yarns in aqua / turquoise, pink and orange more than compensate for the lack of foliage and flowers and create an almost surreal atmosphere....

A volunteer dresses up the tree trunks...what a unique and generous idea of sharing beauty with everyone...

The exhibition is on till  March 25...and I would suggest that you 'run, don't walk'... if you are somewhere close by. For details of the exhibition, please visit here.
