220 Weeks of War / Acts of Love
June 8, 2007

Intersection of Clark/Sheffield/Newport, Chicago 
Performers: Nicole Garneau, Bonnie Garneau, Katherine Klein, Jane Haldiman, Kim Crutcher, A. Pulley, and Craig Harshaw

     

The streets were scrubbed with 50 pounds of boiled beets. The beet juice and flesh made a complete circle around the intersection. 220 flowers were dipped in the beet juice left on the streets and given away to audience and passers-by. Each flower bore a tag that said "This flower is a gift of love and compassion for you."
