The SHADE project was created during the summer of 2004. Many people working together over the course of several weeks have crocheted thousands of recycled plastic grocery bags to create a 10′ x 15′ crocheted awning.

EDITH ABEYTA is a Los Angeles multimedia artist who makes work out of the detritus of consumer culture. By combining trash she’s gleaned off the streets of downtown Los Angeles into sculpture, quilts and extensive, community base collaboration, she exposes the ugly side of abundance in the beautiful objects she makes.
