Laura, Ted and Sheila meet in the rain in late July to select site for Yurt City II. A few weeks later, on August 10th, 2007, on an even worse rainy and freezing cold day, Yurt City participants began the first day of two long days of installing Yurt City II. From left to right Laura Ten Eyck and Ted McGurn, Derrick Wilson assembling PVC pipe for his piece, Todd Knopke soaking wet during the installation of various structures. Fletch in progress of the elaborate and elegant installation - dubbed the "smurf yurt." Installation shot of Socrates Sculpture park, beautiful but FREEZING for a mid August day.
