Come out to the Gardens this Monday!The Labor Day Sunflower Project is Monday, September 6th from 9-3 here at the Gardens.-The Labor Day Sunflower Project is a unique, public, participatory art installation/event organized in celebration of work. The work we do, and the support we provide for each other over the course of the year, is how we create what beauty we create in the Knoxville community. Ironwood Studios has been one of these community supporters always willing to lend a hand in the pursuit of more beauty in Knoxville. The 18X18 foot chain-link sub-straight that literally holds the sculptural installation upright has been stored at Ironwood Studios over the last several years and has, by no small effort, landed on the grounds of its new home in east Knoxville at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum (KBGA). Spread the word and plan on bringing all the sunflowers and sunflower seed heads you can gather for weaving into this year’s installation. Remember to cut the sunflower stems at least 1 foot long for ease in weaving onto the chain-link sub-straight. Hope to see you at the KBGA on Labor Day, Monday, September 6th 9-3.
