The Smithsonian Community Reef

Local crafters who contributed to the Smithsonian Community Reef proved that there is no limit to the colorful reef forms that can be created using hyperbolic crochet techniques. Their wildly imaginative pieces are on display alongside the main installation of the Institute For Figuring’s Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef at Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History from October 16, 2010 to April 24, 2011.
