Yarn Bombing 18th St.
If you have ever thought to yourself, “Hey, that tree could use a sweater”, or “I wish I could add some color to this drab environment”, 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 of Yarn Bombing combines the art of street installation with needlework to create colorful, unexpected, funny and sometimes political messages in a venue shared by everyone. From handmade parking meter cozys to whimsical vignettes of crocheted sparrows fighting over french-fries, knit work raising questions about technology to unraveling performances about memory or crochet that demonstrates hyperbolic geometry theories in 3-D, Yarn Bombing 18th presents the work of over 50 individuals that push the knit/crochet envelope in public art format.
