Cozy Apple is a three-foot wide custom-shaped inflatable apple wrapped with handmade crocheted granny circles. Different shades of red acrylic yarn is used to crochet granny circles that are then sewn together and wrapped around the inflatable apple. The artist will prepare two Cozy Apples.
The first one is a temporary outdoor version that the artist, Gina Gallina, crocheted and fabricated herself. This will be “roaming” around the community
The second one is at its permanent location inside the Bentonville Public Library (405 S Main St.). This apple was created by crocheters in the community and the artist pieced together the individual granny squares created by our residents. There will be an unveiling at the Bentonville Public Library on September 14th at 4:00 pm.
