Posts Tagged ‘Yarn Bombing Los Angeles’

As a member of Yarn Bombing Los Angeles I, along with my husband and our friend Britta participated in their current exhibition California Yarnscape. Our piece along with 40+ other artists’ work is on exhibition at The Autry Museum in Los Angeles. Once a month their our public workshops for people to contribute to the yarn bombing, free with museum admission. The exhibition pieces though are on the rotunda outside the museum, so whether you go inside or not you can view them!

Yarn-O-Polis is on view now at the Grand Central Market in downtown Los Angeles until mid January 2015. Eight columns were covered by several yards of yarn. Two of which are artistic doilies created by me. So stop by for some food (fantastic tacos, burritos, oysters, beverages, pizza, everything you can think of plus a great outdoor seating Texas BBQ bar next door) and view the great Yarn-O-Polis by Yarn Bombing Los Angeles.

Yarn bombing Chinatown was a blast and utterly amazing. After finally viewing my piece Details I was off to choose a planter to yarn bomb. That was easy. There was one planter that had a tree growing out of it. Yes me and trees we have a thing. Plus Julie Kornblum, a member of Yarn Bombing Los Angeles gave me a thinner piece she had knitted that I used on the tree. The first two pictures are of me at Good Luck Gallery with my previously done yarn bomb project.

And the yarn bombs are still up! Artist Patti from Pasadena visited Chinatown recently and shared these lovely pictures with me. It may be sagging a little, but it hasn’t fallen to the ground!

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.
