Part 2 Plarn Project: Arena @ Sculpture Key West 2010

We just received the news that our proposal for the 15th Anniversary Invitational Sculpture Key West Exhibition was accepted. With your help, we will be creating a ball pit that will contain 100 cubic feet of plarn balls. The installation will begin January 8, 2009 and the show will open on the 16th.  The exhibition will be up until April 16th.

We still have our plarn balls from the first installation. These equal approximately 10 cubic feet. Help us make our goal of 100 cubic feet! We are also putting together our website where this work will be featured. Please visit for updates, information on how to participate, and tools for the classroom. It is still under constructions but expect changes daily.

In the meantime, plarn away. We ask that there be no labels this time as the work will be outside and exposed to weather. To help secure the ball, tape down the final tail of plarn. Remember to wrap tightly. Also, if you want to eliminate waste, use the trimmed handles and seams as the center of the plarn ball by wrapping your plarn around it.

We will be giving all schools or participants recognition on the website if they let us know they will be joining in the fun. Feel free to email us at or

Through this project, we hope to continue awareness and advocacy for art education and the environment.

Thank you for your help.

Jennifer and Nathaniel
