Last year I participated in Granny Squared, a big collaborative yarnbombing project organized by Yarn Bombing Los Angeles to cover the facade of the LA Craft and Folk Art Museum with granny squares. I didn’t get to go see the exhibit myself but did follow along with it through the Internet. I was excited to see that there is now a book available, a published catalog from the exhibit.
CAFAM Granny Squared is the official 62 page color catalog for the event. From the YBLA newsletter:
“The catalog offers a behind-the-scenes, critical look at the yearlong public engagement project, featuring photographs of the participants, the community outreach process and the squares submitted. The catalog also features critical essays published in print and/or commissioned specifically for the catalog, written by journalists for publications such as KCET and the Los Angeles Times. Participants, YBLA organizers, CAFAM staff, and homeless advocacy staff share their stories about the way that they were affected by CAFAM Granny Squared and its sister project, Community Threads with the Downtown Women’s Center.”
I’ve just ordered my copy and look forward to its arrival!
