Crochet Wisteria Project
Members of the Irmo, SC community came together to learn how to crochet their own piece of yarn wisteria from artist Barbara Streeter.
Over forty residents worked for over a year to create hundreds of Wisteria flowers for the project. Each piece is part of the knitted twelve foot vine and tree created by Barbara Streeter.
The Crochet Wisteria Tree is part of One Columbia's 1% for Art Program and is on permanent display at Richland Library Ballentine 1321 Dutch Fork Road, Irmo, SC

Barbara created 173 lineal feet of knitted railing covers and a crochet yarn bombed vintage bicycle titled Welcome Home.
Why Public Art?
Public art can express community values, enhance the environment, transform a landscape, heighten our awareness, or question our assumptions.
Placed in public spaces, art is here for everyone, a form of collective community expression. Public art is a reflection of how we see the world - it is the artist’s response to our time and place combined with our sense of who we are.
Public art is part of our public history, part of our collective memory. It reflects and reveals our society and adds meaning to our city.
