Hardcore Handicraft, Serious Streets

Handicraft went inside out this week with the awesome heavy metal quilts of Quiltsrÿche (apologies to 80’s hair bands everywhere). It brings back memories of the cleverly titled knit street art of Knittaplease. And the journey of knitting from hobbyist’s den to high-concept, high-end is complete with Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting at Manhattan’s Museum of Arts & Design.

The serious side found Senator Dick Durbin making a stunning revelation about the non-case for war. ART presented Congress with four story tall articles of impeachment. Also in Congress was a bill that begins acknowledging America’s debt to slaves.

On streets, we got giddy seeing an evolutionary tale play out alongside the highway (via wooster). Heilmann captures a hilarious act of vandalism gone wrong in Then Just Walked Away. Blue and Joy had me smiling all day in Milan. And we fell in love with street art brightening poor neighborhoods in São Paulo. Lots more in artetude’s photostream and Jonathan LeVine’s Brazilian graffiti show.
