Description[Edit This]

Woven in 2013 with 116 old tape measures and thousands of yards of colorful Hunter Douglas window treatment surplus fabric, this 350 foot long x 6 foot high public art installation replicates the plat that early Boulderite Hannah Barker drew up for her neighborhood in 1884. It's the largest chain link fence weaving ever created in the U.S., and will remain on the temporary construction fence throughout the restoration of the historic Hannah Barker House in downtown Boulder at 800 Arapahoe.
