Epic Yarn Bombing! Answered

New York yarn artist Olek has pulled off an act of epic yarn bombing. She crocheted a cover for the Wall Street bull. Incidentally the bull itself was another act of guerrilla street art, having been placed there without permission in 1987 by artist Arturo Di Modica.

I love it! What a great way to soften the concrete jungle.

Wow! How long did it take to make something like that?

Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about! You go girl!!

Do we know how long the cosie lasted?

It was only hours before it was taken down. Kind of sad.

Awwww that's sad.

Who took it down? And did it make the news?

The city took it down. Ni idea if it made the news. My guess is it at least got a mention. She intended it as a Christmas gift to New York.

Haven't seen anything on it except this post. The City does sleep.

The white security vehicle parked watching the activity does seem to indicate she got the necessary permits to swaddle the bull. You can do anything...for a price. Most likely it is the downtown improvement district rent-a-cop, although the streets are patrolled by various city and federal agencies with it's close proximity to Ground Zero.

maby they didn't like the pink in the cover

This type of activity is on the increase - we all need to do one!!! There even have been whole day event world-wide by fiber nuts - encase tree trunk, huge rocks, More monuments need this, even if taken down. Too bad the City of NY didn't embrace this "treasure"!

And Aznemily, I absolutely love that you posted on 1.11.11 at 11:11!
