The already darling Craft & Folk Art Museum will look even cuter for a month this summer when it will temporarily be covered in 12,000 brightly hued crocheted granny squares by knit ‘graffiti’ collective Yarn Bombing Los Angeles. The public art display, called CAFAM Granny Squared, includes contributions from 50 states and 25 countries. But this temporary facade isn’t all bright and cozy. The organizers’ intent is to further set apart CAFAM from the grand institutions that dwarf it on Museum Row, to emphasize that ‘high art’ pushes craft aside as a lesser form of art. Who knew knitting could be so rebellious?
