Yuuki Flower with Daisuke and Marc at Rosedale Park

Yuuki Flower goes to Japan

Our sculpture Yuuki Flower is going to Japan next week!! Today we gave the box of quilted leaves and velcro outfitted studend backpack back to the curator, Daisuke Takeya, who will be taking all the Field Trip Project artwork to Japan next week. The work will travel around Japan in disaster affected areas to cheer people up and bring people together. I cannot think of a better function for art.
