WHEELS at Munree
The installation of WHEELS is a moment at Munree Cemetery (Welaunee Plantation area) in Tallahassee, Florida. At the cemetery, the discovery of 250 burials was made during new road construction; many of the burials at Munree belong to former slaves. The WHEELS represent many cycles and hurdles in life; they are a series of handmade paper artifacts created with recycled packaging materials from everyday products.
