Yarn-Bombing on No. Figueroa St., Highland Park
We had a glorious turn-out at Future Studio for the Fig KnitOn on Saturday night. Future was just one of the galleries involved in the NELA Second Saturday Art Walk. I stayed at Future all evening, but I heard that many of the other galleries were crowded too. This is excellent! The northeast L.A. area has such a rich and vibrant art scene...it's nice to see it appreciated.

When I arrived, I saw that the entire block of Figueroa was "yarn-bombed." There were knitted and/or crocheted cozies around parking meters, bus benches, news stands, electrical boxes and more. It was a perfect entree to the exhibit inside the Studio.

There were many artists represented on Saturday and a variety of items in their yarny greatness. Check out the slide show below for the sidewalk art, work inside the Gallery and the many friends that had a marvy time! Click on the right side of the slide show to scroll thru the photos more quickly.
