The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami, will present “Yarn Bombing” a special installation and exhibition in collaboration with Fantastic Fibers Miami. Yarn Bombing is the crocheted and knitted version of graffiti street art. Temporary, colorful, soft, and organic, it offers artistic expression in a harmless form.
This project will celebrate the talents of students enrolled in the MOCA Teen Program including a yarn bombing of the entrance columns and breezeway at the MOCA building. The exhibition Fresh Threads curated by Gregory Pierre-Louis featuring multiple fiber inspired creations will also be on display.
This program was made possible with the generous support of the North Miami Mayor and Council and the City of North Miami, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
