New York Bike Riders Prepare for Winter

New York Bike Riders Prepare for Winter

Actually, that’s not a bicycle with a sweater. It’s an example of “yarn bombing.”  Read about the genre here:

“Graffiti’s Cozy, Feminine Side,” Malia Wollan, New York Times

The wooly bike above is parked on East 23rd Street in Manhattan, across the street from the School of Visual Arts.

    I love how innovative this type of street art is… so cool! Have you ever heard of Mandy Greer? She actually has a wordpress blog: http://mandygreer.wordpress.com. Her work is more conceptual than just bombings… she involves the community in the makings of a lot of her installations. You should check her out if you have the time… she’s pretty fabulous!
