“We Are All Connected” a yarn bombing installation from The Swatch Team, 5-8pm starting on Open Field and traveling to Loring Park
The Swatch Team is a gang of creative fiber artists that enjoy displaying artwork in surprising places. These installations offer a contrast to the cold, hard, mechanized, digitalized world of fences, concrete and blacktop that we survive in daily, and include items that may be useful or playful for the public to enjoy. “We Are All Connected” starts with a choreographed, traveling performance on Open Field, featuring over 700 feet of knitted items created and donated to the project by knitters across the country for others to take and enjoy.
