Leapin’ Leaf Thing!

Make that fifteen paper sculptures at Westwood City Hall, not sixteen.

Sometime in the wee hours between Wednesday night and Thursday morning (3/16-17/11), my 2010 artwork, The Leaf Thing made what you might call a breakout.

Literally. A crack apparently developed in the frame, which allowed one of the wire eyelets to pull loose. The frame moulding is now toast (cracked beyond repair), and part of the artwork itself has pulled loose.

So it’s back to the studio for The Leaf Thing, for minor repairs to the artwork, and a whole new (better, stronger) frame for the little beast, before it returns to public view in May.
The Leaf Thing in happier times.
