Ann Morton's 'Ground Cover' On Roosevelt Row

December 06, 2013

The impact of art on our souls and minds is indisputable, but how often is that effect practical?

Artist Ann Morton answered a call from the City of Phoenix Arts and Culture looking for temporary projects to help enliven blighted spots along the light rail.

Her “Ground Cover” — which is up Friday — involves hundreds of blankets coming together to form a work of art. When the so-called installation ends tomorrow, the blankets will be distributed to homeless groups. Morton explained her project.
