The Rosslyn Business Improvement District and Arlington Public Art have sponsored three temporary public art projects in Arlington, Virginia. I recently encountered one of the projects located by The Artisphere in Rosslyn. Yarn Bombing!

130 volunteers met for five months as part of the “Guerrilla Stitch Brigade” to create these cheerful pieces of art that brighten the glum streets of Virginia’s business district.

Check out this yarn bombing of the Albert Einstein Memorial downtown from last July. Crocheting is not just for grandma anymore, it has almost become a temporary form of graffiti. What do you think?
