Art Exhaustion, Part 6:The Knitters
Dan at Iconoduel has documented the guys at Western Exhibitions, but there was plenty of knitting and other fiber arts at NOVA.
Two had a military theme:
This is rather like the Western Exhibition performance, only with participation. I sat down and did a few rows with them (the kids from Columbia College):
Mei and I have started our "NetWorking" project and we are looking for all the red yarn we can get our hands on. If you have any kind of red yarn you are willing to donate to this project, you can drop it off at the A+D Gallery before May 12, where we have a donation box. Please find the gallery info listed below.I'm sorry I don't have the gallery or artist names for the other two. (I may find them later, and if so will update the blog).
Also if you are a Knitter, or would like to learn, to help us knit, you can do so at Manifest. We will be knitting at the TICTOC Kick-Off (33 E. Congress, Suite 530) from 9.30am to 11am on May 12th - and from 12-3pm somewhere around the south loop - just look for the red yarn.... We would be happy to knit with you.
Thank you in advance - we hope to see you! Please forward this to your friends!

It's not knitting, but it's a cool piece of art nonetheless -- a re-hooked rug from a gescheidle artist (Whitney Lee, I think):
