The Ground Cover project was installed in an empty lot in downtown Phoenix, Arizona on the NW corner of 1st Street and McKinley. The installation took place on December 6-7, 2013 - just in time for the cold winter months. The overall blanket measured approximately 117 ft. x 50 ft. – made up of 300 individual 40 in. x 70 in. blankets made by the generous "blanketeers" that participated in this project.

"Ground Cover" is a public art project created by Phoenix artist Ann Morton and was commissioned by the City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program.
Ground Cover is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town grant.
