Worked Patch was commissioned by the Spencer Museum in honor of its tenth anniversary. The smallest work Herd has attempted, it was inspired by patchwork quilts. The appearance will change continuously during the twelve months that Herd will work on it. Winter wheat in the fall; wildflowers for summer and winter color. Herd sees his projects as involving not only artistic problems,. but also issues of the land and agriculture and the vanishing people who have worked the land.
