The Red sweaters Project is an art installation designed to raise awareness of the war in Iraq. Volunteers are needed to knit or crochet the sweaters. The concept: Suspend 1500+ hand-knit mini red sweaters from a tree (one for each US soldier who has died in the war). Participants: Anyone who can knit or crochet! Purpose: This project is an art installation that was inspired by the war in Iraq. Its purpose is to spread public awareness, encourage thought, and inspire discussions about war and current events without promoting a specific view. Credits: This project began Saturday, February 19, 2005 in San Francisco, California at 1:32am by Nina Rosenberg. For more information see their website: http://www.redsweaters.org
