CATHERINE GRISEZ: Cultivate – A River Tapestry

Location: South Park Bridge

Catherine Grisez is a well-known fine art jeweler and small metals sculptor who lives in the South Park neighborhood. Made of recycled materials, Cultivate represented the river’s rebirth and was created with assistance by community volunteers. Local bars, restaurants, and recyclers saved their beer cans, plastic soda bottles, and fishing nets. In a series of work parties, neighbors, friends, and local youth groups created and assembled the components of the piece.
