Sweater Bombing

This past week Yarn Bombing Los Angeles bombed the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center in Southern California. I sweater bombed a palm tree at the front of the building near the street. The show is titled surroundings and is up until June 26, 2014. Although I heard that the center may want the tree bombs up through the summer! Yes please I say.

Because I don’t knit or crochet my tree was sweater bombed, actually sweater/scarf bombed. I whip stitched sweaters and scarves together. I left the arms dangling so that they blow in the breeze. And I must say they were doing exactly that! Below are some pictures of the installing of the sweater bomb, the opening night, and of the entire exhibit. Trees bombed, textile forest, and maps of LA and other locations plus a weaved volley ball net.
