A collective work of art

On 1 October, the organisation Mamie et Moi announced the details of its new project “Collectif au Carré”. The idea is to create a knitted, XXL version of La Petite Histoire, an impressionist painting by Luxembourg artist Corneille Lentz (1879-1937). This unusual challenge is open to all knitting enthusiasts. Participants will have eight months to complete the challenge by knitting squares of 5 cm, to be settled in collecting boxes located at the 2 Musées de la Ville. The final artwork will be exhibited at the Lëtzebuerg City Museum in April 2021.
