Yarn Storm Perry Park
361 Washington St, Somerville, MA
Sponsored by ARTSomerville & the Nave Gallery
August 25–November 18, 2012
Organized by Margaret Ryan, aka ‘Pearl K. Nit’
Perry Park, between Dane Street and Leland Streets, outside of Union Square (closer to Beacon Street), will be YARN STORMED by artists young and old who enjoy knitting, crocheting and livening up a public space with yarn-based designs and patterns.
Some of you have begun creating items to decorate trees, chain link fences, bollard lights, bike rack, light poles and more. And we can't wait to put it all together. Come on out and help us give this park a serious makeover!
If you are not able to come by, but would like to have some pieces installed, they can be dropped off before August 25th at the Nave Gallery, 155 Powderhouse Blvd., Somerville, MA 02144. Not sure what to make? Email Margaret Ryan, margaret@rcn(dot)com, for more details.
We will need a lot of help day of to do the installation, so please let all your friends know about this event!
And, make sure to give yourself a YARN STORMING ‘Tag’ name that we can include as part of the piece (for example, ‘Pearl K. Nit’).
This is going to be a lot of fun! Look forward to creating some art with you all!
