Get your knitting needles ready! Snowmass Tourism debuts a new community-based art project this summer, focused on the art of Yarn Bombing. All area knitters and crocheters are invited to participate in this whimsical art project geared to generate smiles. Yarn Bombing is the act of wrapping colorful knitted pieces to objects in public spaces for the pure purpose of art and smiles. For more information, images, and history on yarn bombing, please click here. Trees and other stationary objects around Snowmass Town Park have been selected for coverage in custom knitted and crocheted pieces, culminating in a colorful spectacle of yarn wrapped objects and arbors.

Organizers have worked with Snowmass Parks, Recreation & Trails as well as Snowmass Village’s Parks, Open Space, Trails & Recreation Advisory Board to identify suitable trees and objects to be ‘bombed’. All yarn will be provided for free, although each knitting artist needs to provide their own needles/hooks. The crafting can be done at home, in knitting groups or wherever needlers prefer. Anyone interested in participating in Yarn Bombing can meet with organizers at Snowmass Town Park on Saturday, March 11 from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. or on Monday, March 13 from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. to pick and measure target(s), review the overall program, and pick up free yarn. Refreshments will be provided, and sample patterns will be available. The project is open to approximately 50 fiber artists.

Artists are free to create their masterpiece when and where they like with a goal to complete their “bombs” by the end of May. Installation sessions are scheduled for early June. Each piece will feature the artist’s name and a brief bio. The exhibition takes place outdoors at Snowmass Town Park and remains in place through summer 2023.
