Pop Des Fleuer Pittsburgh POPS @ GA/GI

Rendering of a potential Pop Des Fleurs Display
During GA/GI Fest at Mostly Mod & ARTica Gallery--MM & AG (5110 Penn) you'll see Pop! Pops of fun, funky flowers! On Friday, May 1, the Pop Des Fluers project will be on hand to discuss their project which has attracted the talents of craftspeople all over Allegheny county in creating over-sized, hand made and crocheted flowers from salvage materials that will soon be installed as public art in Pittsburgh city parks and other locations. Pop Des Fleurs is a community outreach  project of the Fiberarts Guild, and Fiberarts International 2016. The project began as a way to brighten this past winter and the upcoming winter through outdoor installations, during a time when the sky and months are most dreary. Collections of used clothing, yarn, bags and sheets are being taken for the project, and test installations have been made in Lawrenceville, Southside and other locations.

The 2015 installations are just winding down, so Pop Des Fleurs is gearing up for the winter of 2016. Learn more about the project at the retro retail shop--MM & AG--which is hosting Pop Des Fleurs representative, Suzy Waldo. She'll be on hand to take craft donations and give a flower making demo.
