Cloverdale sculpture gets “yarn bombed”
First it was planking. Now, it appears “yarn bombing” has come to Cloverdale.
The controversial big green sculpture on the corner of N. Cloverdale Blvd. and W. Second Street has been yarn bombed with a colorful skirt made with strands of blue and purple yarn.
Yarn bombing is a type of crochet and knit graffiti in which random objects around a community are decorated with yarn – everything from telephone poles to chain link fences, bicycles, and, yes, even statues.
Reaction has been mixed, but overall, people seem to like The Green Lady’s new look. What do you think?
