The Wildflowers Of Wisconsin

Stay tuned for upcoming events! 

The Wildflowers of Wisconsin is a fiber art installation coming in the Fall of 2024 comprised of oversized crocheted flora native to Wisconsin that will be on exhibition in McKee Farms Park in Fitchburg. The Madison Public Art Project (MPAP) commissioned Kiersten Darling, a neurodivergent "spoonie," as the lead fiber artist. Sapphira Afifi is leading the monthly crochet workshops where the MPAP is also inviting the community into the art-making process to create individual flowers that will be incorporated into the larger artistic expression as part of the final fiber mural.

The Wildflowers of Wisconsin encourages individuals to rethink their own consumption habits and look at reducing, reusing, recycling, upcycling, foraging, composting, and encouraging pollinator friendly gardening spaces. This public art project raises awareness about climate change, and encourages greater stewardship of the land. It is our hope that individuals who participate in this project will feel inspired to act after coming together to create this dynamic installation.

We hope you can join us!
