The Umbrella Tumbleweed is a sculpture constructed from the remnants of the broken, discarded umbrellas which litter the city streets after every rain storm. Approximately 50 of these umbrella-corpses have been interwoven to create a tumbleweed-like ball, about 3 feet in diameter.

The sculpture will be part of the Art in Odd Places 2015: RECALL and will be displayed at the corner of 14th Street and 7th Avenue from October 7-11 .
