Artist and Credits:
Among the Wildflowers Riverbox was created by artist Katlin Rothacher of Hartville, Ohio. Rothacher is a recent graduate of Kent State University with a B.F.A. in Textile Arts. Her interest in form has pushed her to create dimensional woven structures and fabric sculptures. Her work is strongly influenced by her experiences and the beauty of the natural world.

Special thanks to geocacher msmandi for helping us list this Riverbox on Geocaching.com.

Get Inspired!

Artist Katlin Rothacher’s work is largely inspired by the beauty of the natural world. To do her part to help maintain the beauty and preserve the natural environment, Rothacher chooses to use post consumer waste (i.e. recycled plastic, fabric, paper and found objects) as materials when creating her artwork. By reducing her material waste and reusing found objects, Rothacher takes a step to help preserve the environment and reduce her carbon footprint!

You too can make an impact. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
