Big Nest by Paige Byrne is one of three artworks in progress for an assignment called Left Behind. The nest was made using materials from the community garden compost/waste corner. The other works of this series will also use garden waste to create form.The nest is 4 feet in diameter and 2 feet in height. Byrne said, “I am very excited to see my creativity grow from using art materials on paper or canvas to art materials that are right there in front of me.”
The Wylie Community Garden is located just off of H Street NE on the corner of 13th & Wylie Streets NE.
