If you have ever thought to yourself\, “Hey\, that tree cou ld use a sweater”\, or “I wish I could add some color to this drab environm ent”\, or “Wouldn’t it be great to cover the riffle in that old statue with something soft &\; fuzzy” then we have an exhibit for you!... The act o f Yarn Bombing combines the art of street installation with needlework to c reate colorful\, unexpected\, funny and sometimes political messages in a v enue shared by everyone. From handmade parking meter cozys to whimsical vig nettes of crocheted sparrows fighting over french-fries\, knit work raising questions about technology to unraveling performances about memory or croc het that demonstrates hyperbolic geometry theories in 3-D\, Yarn Bombing 18th presents the work of over 50 individuals that push the knit/croch et envelope in public art format.

\n

Organized by Arzu Arda Kosar\, an artist in residence at the 18th Street Arts Center\, and Heather Hoggan\, Co-president of the Arroyo Arts Collective\, Yarn Bombing 18th juxta poses “serious” artists and novice crafters\, craft and fine art\, high bro w art and low art and also widens the contemporary description of “street a rt” beyond the young\, male\, hardcore\, “the back streets of New York circ a 80’s” stereotype.
