The exhibit will run from October to April. To learn more about it click here.There are reef alongs happening all over the DC Metropolitan area including a workshop as part of the folklife festival on June 28. There is a group on Ravelry sharing patterns pictures and reef along locations and a photo album on Flicker. Lion Brand has patterns for coral. Anyone can crochet a piece(s) for the exhibit and submit it. There will be three sections in the exhibit. One of highly colored and "healthy coral", one of toxic :angry coral made out of things like plastic bags to symbolize what pollution is doing to the reef, and one :eek of bleached reef so everything will be whitish global warmings contribution to the reef.
