Pavilion Spotlight: Knit the Pavil-YARN

Posted: Updated:

With each stitch, a work of art is taking shape. But, these pieces aren't for people to wear stylishly. They're set for the Knit the Pavil-YARN.

"It's a full-scale yarn bombing. We've seen little bits of yarn-bombing happen around town on some of the of the parking meters, but we're trying to cover as much of the objects on the outside of our building as possible," said Jodi Lundgren from the Washington Pavilion.

Yarn-bombing or yarn graffiti is the kinder, gentler version of street art that boldly transforms objects in public spaces with colorful and fuzzy knitted and crocheted wrappings.

"It's good to do something fun and engage people creatively," said Lundgren. "It's interesting to talk to the knitters. They get a chance to be freer in what they're doing or try things out."

The idea is for as many people to get involved as possible: from knitting and crocheting to donating yarn, hooks, and needles.

"The more the merrier. The more we get involved, the more we can cover outside," said Lundgren. "It should be a big colorful, festive space around the Pavilion this summer hopefully."
