Pittsburgh becomes the site of the largest yarn bomb every in the U.S. as the Andy Warhol Bridge is knitted! Communities from all over western Pennsylvania have joined together to create a large-scale and aesthetically stunning art installation to celebrate the City of Bridges!
Knit the Bridge Pittsburgh is a community-led art project to yarn bomb the Andy Warhol Bridge, Aug 12-Sept 6. What is yarn bombing? Yarn bombing is a type of street art that displays fun, bright and beautiful yarn on public structures without damage.
Over 1,500 makers, representing 92% of Pittsburgh neighborhoods, have helped to create this stunning artwork. After the panels are removed, they will be washed and distributed to community shelters.
While boaters, pedestrians, motorists and cyclists can view the installation daily, the can't-miss event is the Knit the Bridge Art Party on Aug 25. Food, music and art activities all happen on the Andy Warhol Bridge that night with an up-close view of the magnificent artwork.
