Ann Morton’s “Ground Cover” Public Art Project in Phoenix
Includes 300 Blankets Made By 600 Volunteers
It looked like a giant desert flower parked in the middle of a vacant lot, but in person you could see the threads and hard work behind 300 blankets carefully crocheted, knitted and quilted together.
Due to the talents of graphic design artist Ann Morton and the kindness of strangers,
the homeless in downtown Phoenix will get these cozy covers for Christmas.
“‘Ground Cover is a play on words because you think of plants and flowers but you also think of people on the ground, the homeless,” said Ann to Kellie Kwang at azcentral.com. “Blanketeers,” as Ann calls them, from the U.S. and Canada responded to her call for help to make these special coverings.
