Why is the North Lamar underpass art installation covered in yarn?


Read time: < 1 minute

Have you seen this yet? It’s an art installation covered up by what the artist calls “graffiti knitting,” an international trend of covering urban construction with yarn fabric. Also called yarn bombing, this trend is consuming Austin’s signage (and in this photo, an original art installation by Carl Trominski), by the hands of local yarn bomber Magda Sayeg who has covered everything from an old-school bus to street rails in Italy. Sayeg’s graffiti knitting kicks off Art Week Austin and will be on display over the next month.

If you want to see more art like this, make sure to stop by downtown this weekend where Art City Austin will hold its 60th annual community-wide art celebration. Read more about Art Week Austin by visiting Art Alliance Austin’s website.
