My Grass/gras' installation won first prize!

My Grass/gras' installation won first prize! This sculpture, a 9' x 9' lawn of grass made from recycled tin cans won First Prize!!!!!!!!!! in the SMART Art – Trash into Treasure’ exhibition! This is sponsored by Lincart Gallery - in collaboration with David de Rothschild's Adventure Ecology & Sculpt the Future Foundation

The exhibition will be up for the month of June.
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area go see the show. There is some very interesting work.
Where: Lincart Gallery, 1632 C Market St., SF, CA. 94102

The exhibition had 700 entries...I understand that the finalists will be viewable on line. www.lincart.com
Check it out! Recycle.

Watch my Grass/gras' video on Crafthaus, YouTube or on my web site. It shows the environmental impact of grass along with footage in the studio showing the assembly process.

I am always looking for exhibition space for this important piece. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

The grass/gras/ lawn is 9' x9' . That would be a little less than 3 meters square.
There are 32, 400 blades of grass each one cut my hand to have a unique curve or shape.

Congratulation!
I have lived almost all my life in Rome, a town where people live in apartments and I have never faced the problem of growing the perfect grass, and I was not aware of what a big deal the lawn is until I moved here and I got my own green spot to take care, but I still find this a bit crazy but as usual (when I don't understand something here) I attributed it to the culture difference
:)

Anyway I hope to see your grass sculpture in person one day!
how big is the final piece?
