Blanket Covered Gas Station.

Blanket Covered Gas Station.

The aspiring artist Jennifer Marsh (who is finishing her masters of fine arts degree at Syracuse University) along with an inspired activist came up with an idea that in a way would bring greater attention to the world's dependency on oil. To conclude the task, they had a perfect candidate. She would see on the drive to her studio each day: this old gas station, which was covered in 5,000 square feet of fabric (colossal handmade blanket).
'With the help of professional and amateur artists from 15 countries and more than 2,500 grade-school students in 29 states, Marsh covered the 50-year-old former Citgo station -- pumps, light stands, signs and all -- with more than 3,000 fiber panels that are crocheted, knitted, quilted or stitched together.'
