DESCRIPTION

Los Angeles guerrilla collectives, Yarn Bombing Los Angeles (YB:LA) and the California Poppy Collective, have teamed up with the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum to bring you an Arbor Day 2012 event on Friday, April 27th from 9am to 9pm, with artists... present from 4-6pm.

Specially made seed bombs will hang from a knitted tree in front of the museum on 5814 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA, 90036, where YBLA & Arroyo Art Collective's window installation Forest, For the Tress: a knit forest environment and additional street installations, including a giant spider web, are on display. Visitors are encouraged to pick the seed bombs from the tree and start their own green revolution.

The displays will be on view until May 6th and the seeds will be available until supplies last. Artists from Yarn Bombing Los Angeles and the California Poppy Collective will be on site to interact with the audience on Arbor Day, April 27th, 4-6pm.

Yarn Bombing Los Angeles (YBLA) is a group of guerrilla knitters who have been collaborating since 2010 to stage public installations and performances to help expand the definitions of public art to include street art, and street art and graffiti to include yarn bombing. Monthly meetings take place every 3rd Saturday, 2-5pm at Craft and Folk Art Museum 5814 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90036

The California Poppy Collective (The CPC) is a multi-faceted project, facilitated by Southern California artist, Christy Roberts, that explores the relationship between private and community, ownership and occupation. The Poppy Project ultimately aims to re-contextualize the California Poppy, and subsequently, any protected species as a symbol and tool for land reclamation and ecological non-violent action. The bright orange of the California Poppy acts as a warning to developers, that the community has chosen to take this piece of land back.

Currently the Poppy Project is manifested through Bomb/Balm workshops, The California Poppy Militia, as well as events, drawings, videos, photographs, and objects that both document and are inspired by the project.
