Crochet Coral Reef Project Satellite Reef

In the spring of 2022, the NCMA will host a Satellite Reef as part of the Crochet Coral Reef project of Margaret and Christine Wertheim and the Institute For Figuring, a Los Angeles–based organization dedicated to the poetic and aesthetic dimensions of science and mathematics. North Carolina fiber artists, crochet enthusiasts, craftivists, and crochet beginners can create individual parts of the Satellite Reef, which will be on view in the exhibition Fault Lines: Art and the Environment.

We invite you to contribute your crocheted pieces! Learn how.
