Streetcolor Yarnbombing Resume

June 2010   Began yarnbombing as Streetcolor with  ” The Russian ”    in Berkeley Ca .  Took the name Streetcolor to be able to work anonymously  as part of the street art tradition and as a reaction against the focus on personality in art .

2010 to 2012  Streetart Installations

100  Yarnbombing Installations at public libraries , movie theaters ,  bookstores , galleries , gardens , restaurants , bakeries ,universities and Bart Trains .  These installations where made as a map of my routine path through my city and as an effort to shift the sensation of a city street .

Yarnbombing Museums

We yarnbombed the outside of several museums as an intervention to how art is shown . These included The SF MOMA , The Crocker Museum , The Cantor Art Museum , The San Jose Art Museum , The Santa Cruz Museum of Art And History , The Musee De’ Orsay in Paris . more here .

Yarnbombing Installations Location

Berkeley , Oakland , Palo Alto ,  San Francisco , Sacramento and Santa Cruz , Ca ,  Asheville and Charlotte N . C . and Paris , France .  I traveled and yarnbombed to have a more intense and physical experience of the places I was visiting and to interact with people  and police on the street .
