A Moment at Grass Lake

Grass Lake Sanctuary Artist Collective Artists's avatar Grass Lake Sanctuary Artist Collective Artists

The Grass Lake Sanctuary Artist Collective have strived to create a full circle concept of relationality between medium and space using repurposed, recycled & reclaimed materials to bring to life moments & feelings we have experienced at Grass Lake Sanctuary, a 145-acre non profit retreat & nature sanctuary near Chelsea, Michigan. As much as possible materials were collected from the land including berries & mud used for dying our burlap bags filled with Michigan sand, reclaimed naturally fallen branches and water from the pond used to mix watercolor for leaves and vines. In addition we used recycled and repurposed materials such as second hand fabrics, renewed lighting fixtures and miscellaneous parts, pieces and packing supplies donated from local businesses. We hope that for a moment in your day even under fluorescent lights & carpets beneath your feet you are able to slow down, feel & experience a moment of awe and comfort in what we have created for you.
