Phragmites Line

100 upright stalks of 6 ft tall wetlands grasses (Phragmites) were set approximately 5 ft apart to create a single file line that crossed several city courtyards and building interiors and exteriors, ending in a gallery exhibit.

Founded in 1996 in Providence, RI, Guerrilla Gardens focused on developing the medium of the “semi-anonymous” temporary installation as a way of expressing the potential of landscape and architecture in various urban spaces.
