Posts Tagged ‘Yarn Bombing Los Angeles’

Forest for the Trees is a Yarn Bombing Los Angeles exhibit at the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX airport. It was installed in March 2019 and will be up for 6 months. I contributed 5 little birds to it. Spot them in the pictures!

About the exhibit from the YBLA website:

Old-growth forests exhibit distinctive ecological features and are often home to rare, threatened, and endangered species of plants and animals, making them ecologically signicant. Unfortunately, many of our old-growth forest stands are threatened by habitat destruction at the invasive hands of man. This fiber-based installation hopes to address the wonders and perils of the forest by creating an environment that is at once unique and fantastic, dangerous and bizarre, and by acknowledging that one day, the built environment may be all that’s left.

Artists used standard, recycled, and unusual materials to create trees, ground cover, animals, water, rain, and much more.

Participating artists include:
Edith Abeyta, Amy Bauer, Luisa Bottari, Leslie Brown, Alexandra Busby, Yolanda Diaz, Katelyn Dorroh, Beth Elliott, Jacque Lene Engel, Carmela Gomes, Margaret Hateld, Heather Hoggan, Amy Caterina Hill, Kristen Johannsen, Lisa Jong, Julie Kornblum, Arzu Arda Kosar, Justine Leong, Charlotte Marshall, Tyler Mitzner, Theresa Knopf Morgan, Lauri Mraz, Diane Olson-Baskin, Racquel “Rocky” Ormsby, David Orozco, Olga O’Shea, Adrianna Rianna, Judy Richards, Connie Rohman, Joan Sauve, Erin Shea, Ann Storc, Kacy Treadway, Jane Wang, Jessica Wards, Tracy Williams, Darlyn Susan Yee, and Carol Zou. Threadwinners: Alyssa Arney and Liz Flynn. High Desert Yarn Stormers: Diane Bush, Jeanette Johannes, Linda Leonard, Hui-Mei Ellis, Linda Cahoon, Irene Cochran, Linda Greco, Laura Henley, Rita Poon, Maria Zapata, Terri Lonski, Connie Grifn, Kazuko Tajima.

This exhibition is presented by Los Angeles World Airports and the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

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!
