Yarn Bombing of Olympic Proportions

Posted on

This photo is from the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.  If you look closely, you’ll see that the front columns have been yarn bombed.

The project entitled K2TOG (Knit 2 Together),  is meant to welcome the US and Jamaican track and field teams who were training in Birmingham for the Olympics.  It features columns in Red/White/Blue and Black/Yellow/Green to represent each of the countries’ flags.  Sponsored by the group Stitches and Hos, the installation features the work of more than 400 volunteer artists, and will remain in tact until the end of September.
