We spend a fair amount of time taking and posting photos of street art, so it is always nice to find out that someone has noticed our efforts. Recently, Simone Werle chose some of our pics of guerilla knitting installations here in Chicago for her book Urban Knits which will be released by Prestel Publishing this July.
One of our photos is of a knit piece in front of the Art Institute's world famous lion sculptures. The work is from Microfiber Militia and has occupied that pole on Michigan Avenue since May 2008. The Militia contacted us and wanted us to "make sure to note that the white piece with a heart on it that's at the very top of the piece... that's not us. Somebody added that after it was up for awhile."
You can order your copy of Urban Knits here, or pick one up in person at Maxwell Colette Gallery once the book is released in July.
