Gas Station Cozy


With the help of professional and amateur artists from 15 countries and more than 2,500 grade-school students in 29 states, artist Jennifer Marsh covered this 50-year-old former Citgo station — pumps, light stands, signs and all — with more than 3,000 fiber panels that are crocheted, knitted, quilted or stitched together."

I am soooo impressed. I quilt but can't produce more than one a year. To cover a building like that is just as cool as cool can be!

Incredibly cool! This has made my day!

Almost Precious said...

Art by any name is still, like "a rose is a rose", art.
This is really cool and reminds me of 1983 when Christo and Jeanne-Claude covered the small islands in Miami's Biscayne Bay with brilliant pink fabric. It looked like pop art with hot pink lily pads floating on water. Of course afterwards it all had to be removed as there were environmental issues ... didn't want all 6.5 million yards of that fabric ending up in the bay waters. All those schools of little fishies may have ended up wearing shocking pink parochial uniforms.

I would venture to say that this would keep the old gas station warm through the winter. :)

Jessica Thompson said...

Haha, that's great!
