The Immigrant Yarn Project at Fort Point
When Cindy Weil envisioned a colossal yarn bombing of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park during the early days of 45’s administration—when the combover-in-chief scribbled an executive order that became the so-called Muslim Ban—she did not simply think and speak about her idea. Cindy had the grit and wherewithal to create it. I admire her ability to generate a clever, impactful idea and then implement it.
The Immigrant Yarn Project is both public art and participatory story-telling. The website’s worth a visit for both background information and inspiring stories. Visit Fort Point and see this exhibition. Do not delay!
