Southwest School of Art presents The San Antonio Satellite Reef Project, part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef Project created by the Institute For Figuring. Since 2006, the Institute For Figuring has worked with communities around the world to create local "satellite" reefs. Just as living reefs send out spawn - tiny seeds that settle in far-flung places and begin to grow into new reefs - so too the Crochet Coral Reef sends out "spawn."

Satellite reefs have now been constructed in 30 cities and countries worldwide, including Chicago, New York, London, Latvia, Ireland, and Germany. The San Antonio Satellite Reef is the newest addition to this enchanted archipelago. Throughout 2015 and 2016, members of the San Antonio community gathered in workshops to make these forms. The corals they crocheted have been arranged into a unique topography.
