A new yarnbomb at The Crocker Museum

15 Dec

I have had The Crocker Museum on my mind. I have continued to be surprised by all the positive feedback and enthusiasm . I wanted to go back and do a really big knitted installation, cover every pole. I thought that might be seen as a friendly gesture or it might be seen as really annoying. The first pole was really made for the new Crocker Museum which is white,uplifting and exhilarating. I like the old museum for different reasons, its comforting, enclosing, luxurious and calming. I knit this darker and more conservative piece for the old Crocker Museum.

I wanted to put it up in the dark and the museum is open until 7 on Wed. The Russian hadn’t seen the wonderful collection so we looked at art and waited for darkness. We also had some divine lentil soup at the cafe. I was surprised to find a the Paul Jenkins show in the special exhibitions room, it’s very beautiful and relieving to be surrounded by the color.. At 7 we went out and sewed this piece onto a pole near the old museum. It’s not very obvious that it’s there.It’s a little secret gift.

    I haven’t read much feedback on your blog, but I can tell you the Crocker is really pleased. They post this on their Facebook page every time you do it.
