We knit 7 yarnbombs for 7 parking meters in 7 colors with black stripes to match the striped marble pillars in front of The SF MOMA. It was still up 7 months later.
These 3 pieces went up in front of The De Young Museum the summer of 2010.We handspin all our yarn so we can get the exact colors we want. I’m interested in getting knitting to have more dimension with adding ruffles and ridges. The Golden Gate Park Service was pretty irate over these and took 2 of them down but miraculously missed the black one.
The Musee D ‘Orsay , Paris. I put this up across the street from The Musee. The ruffle was derived from a Manet painting in the awe inspiring collection. The pedestrians packed in around me as I sewed . People had lots to say to me , but it was all in French.
This is a small museum with a great community feeling. I put up this piece while they were having an opening. They left it up. Thank you.
This piece was red and black to go with their sign. I put it up in broad day light -very nerve racking. I never heard another word about it from anyone so it was probably taken down at once.
This heavenly museum is Free! I would have loved to yarnbomb every pole and bike rack near the place but the Stanford Campus security guards pulled up and I ran away.
The Crocker Museum is thrilling with very good food and a lot of Wayne Theibauds’. I loved that they put these pieces on their Facebook page and did a newspaper article. They have a very modern, playful attitude.
