This year's theme for the Prairie Outdoor Exhibition at the Winnipeg Folk Festival is tradition. Inspired by Manitoba's provincial flower and campers summer tradition of pitching a tent my installation is called the Crocus Tent. Using donated fabrics and yarn, an old bicycle wheel and various poles this crocus leans down petals tied creating a shady patch. Festival goers are welcome to drop by and sit a spell in the shady patch, while at night the tent will light up providing a brightly lit haven.
