As Canal Convergence continues to grow and expand the event will transition to the fall, with our first fall Canal Convergence taking place November 2018. Choi + Shine Architects are creating the first of several large scale, site-specific installations to be featured at this event. Their sculpture, “Arizona!” is an 8 foot tall, 650 ft long hand crocheted lace ribbon which will elegantly meander over and around the Arizona canal in Scottsdale from November 2018 through March 2019. The artists are looking for experienced crocheters to contribute to this piece and will be on site at the Canal for the first weekend of Canal Convergence February 23rd & 24th to discuss their project and how you can get involved. Stop by to meet the artists and learn about their upcoming installation!
