“Connie’s Quilt,” an art project by students at South Lakes High School, now blankets a portion of Lake Thoreau.
The structure was created by the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) club. It is made of galvanized metal, airplane cables, tubing, connectors and cable ties.
The project aims to represent community connections and the notion that the self-made man does not exist, according to Public Art Reston. Reston Association, Public Art Reston and SLHS partnered to make the project possible.
A series of videos about the project are available online:
