The 35th annual Utah Arts Festival begins Thursday in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. And, in preparation for the festival, the UAF has produced a series of weekly webisodes that highlight a few of the many great features in all realms of creative and artistic expression. The eighth installment features the Yarn Bombing Random Acts of Art project which has been developed by The Utah Arts Festival and Art Access/VSA Utah. Knitters, yarn shops and various community groups have joined to knit, crochet, weave or sew pieces to cover various objects at Washington and Library Squares during the festival. From parking meters to park benches, light poles to drinking fountains, any object has been considered fair game. Funding has been provided through a grant from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums.
And, continue to follow The Selective Echo for wall-to-wall coverage and previews of the festival. The Selective Echo is joined by Max P. Dahl, an intern journalist from Utah State University, who is the blog’s assistant editor.
