(or, "Best Pal Made It Tuesday")
I've had a special request from best pal. We both hope you will share this information widely.
She worked on the yarnbomb of the Smithsonian! How cool is that?
The project was in aid of Japanese performance and installation artist Chuharu Shiota's new installation at the Sackler Gallery. "Haunted by the traces that the human body leaves behind, the work amasses personal memories of lost individuals and past moments through an accumulation of discarded shoes and notes collected by the artist." If you look at the photos here, it will become clear why the yarnbomb is done all in red.
This exhibit will be on view through June 7, 2015. If you are in Washington, DC you should go. And if you can't get there, you can read about the shoes here. But you should go. When was the last time you went to D.C.?
