Public Art: Crazy Quilt

There was an article in Saturday's Chandler Republic about a woven metal tapestry "crazy quilt" at the Downtown Chandler Public Library. Unfortunately, I can't find the article on-line to provide you a link to the article and picture. So, I'll summarize. The "quilt" is the work of artist Marianne Flenniken who began sewing and embroidery when she was young. She has also done weaving and has experimented with metal window screen fabric. The sculpture was part of a rotation of sculpture in Downtown Chandler but is now part of the permanent collection at the Downtown Chandler Library on the main floor. It is a woven metal tapestry that resembles a crazy quilt.
