This blog will keep you up to date as to the status of the outdoor public art installation titled Pleiades, part of the Amherst Biennial in Amherst, Massachusetts. The installation is now located at The Swartz Family Farm and can be viewed from Route 116, north of the UMass exit. You can pass the installation on your right and pull off road near the guard rail, park and walk the fields.
This installation made of raw wool collected from local farms, will be taken down in predicted weather of rain and gusts of high winds. To plan your viewing please consult this daily blog to see if the sails are "sailing" or "reefed" for the weather.
Today the sails are being taken down for the next few days.
Due to predicted high winds the sails will stay down today. Minor repairs will be made on the grey sail. There are new photos posted on my website of this new site installation, also please visit this video of the sails being made.http://vimeo.com/16207504
