Olek, a Polish artist from NYC was in Kraków to uninstall her crocheted art installation where she covered the Plac Bohaterow Getta, Karol Badyna ’s chairs monument with crochet covers and flowers, in recognition of the lost souls of the Jew’s tragically taken during the war - ’lives that never had the chance to fully bloom’
Sorry to see it go,

There was a moment during the parade last Sunday when we suddenly were like oh no... is this real... please say yes, please say yes, and of course he did!!! It was my first time witnessing a marriage proposal and it was so touching. One soul expressed love, dedication, promise and, even more, to love another soul.
I'm grateful I'm living in a city that allows for same sex marriage to happen. We have gone really far in the last years.
But the fight is not over. Equality in some parts of the word is not totally equality. We need to fight and make sure we can allow for this to happen everywhere. I believe it can happen. It won't be fast or easy but if we put our collective minds into something we can accomplish it all. Love always wins!!! Thank you beautiful boys @db @pupseamus for sharing your love with us.
Oh, and I'm so proud my crocheted flag was the background for your love.

#loveparade

Wow! What an amazing experience. I've been in NYC for 17 years and even though I saw the parade a few times, I have never walked inside. Let me tell you... it was a life changing experience to participate in it. Thank you NYC for all the LOVE. And yes, this is how it is done. Give me any love parade and I will be part of it. That's why "anti-" anything demonstrations do not work. Let's create more love, as only with love can we fight the negativity that is attempting to take over the world.
Yes, last Sunday I got inspired.  Beautiful people, even more, beautiful souls... I hope we can walk together again next year with crocheted rainbow creatures.
Thank you again to anyone who was there to celebrate with us as it was a collective adventure.

Thank you @chrissalgardo for inviting me to be part of this incredible experience

In 2005, after 5 years of not being able to leave the USA, I finally went back to my home country.
I exploded with wrapping objects. I did the first trees, first car, foot bridge, etc.... I was wrapping memories of my childhood. One of those memories was the #bunker from #WORLDWAR2 which my peers and I used, without our parents' knowledge, as an illegal playpen during the socialist era.

I really do not want to have another generation of kids using bunkers as their playground.

"Multi-dimensional artists like the Polish-now-Brooklyn-based OLEK find it difficult to describe their work because they fall into many categories; installation, sculpture, performance, theater. Often they create their own category entirely, unconcerned with labels and dogmatically narrow definitions. Thanks to the elastic quality of her crocheted art materials, you may see people wearing them at official events, at dinners, in a swimming pool, or simply crossing a busy Berlin street on a Friday night."

The mural is very close to the Susan B. Anthony House and across the street from where, in 1872, she "illegally" registered to vote in the presidential election. "Susan B. Anthony was born February 15, 1820 in Adams, Massachusetts. She was brought up in a Quaker family with long activist traditions. ... The mural is very close to the Susan B. Anthony House and across the street from where, in 1872, she "illegally" registered to vote in the presidential election. "Susan B. Anthony was born February 15, 1820 in Adams, Massachusetts. She was brought up in a Quaker family with long activist traditions. Early in her life she developed a sense of justice and moral zeal.

After teaching for fifteen years, she became active in temperance. Because she was a woman, she was not allowed to speak at temperance rallies. This experience, and her acquaintance with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, led her to join the women's rights movement in 1852. Soon after, she dedicated her life to woman suffrage.

Ignoring opposition and abuse, Anthony traveled, lectured, and canvassed across the nation for the vote. She also campaigned for the abolition of slavery, the right for women to own their own property and retain their earnings, and she advocated for women's labor organizations. In 1900, Anthony persuaded the University of Rochester to admit women.

Anthony, who never married, was aggressive and compassionate by nature. She had a keen mind and a great ability to inspire. She remained active until her death on March 13, 1906." - Susan B. Anthony House

I'm very proud of this community and the way it all came together to make this project a reality.
Special thanks to

The 178 participants in Rochester and Auburn who crocheted squares, totaling over 1.5 million collective stitches. Some had been crocheting for 50+ years while others learned for the first time at our workshops.

Patti Blaine, Georgia Carney, and the team at SewGreen Rochester for offering your time, crochet expertise, and precious storage space, and for creating an atmosphere of community around the project.

Barbara and Dan Hoffman for believing in the vision and your support from beginning to end.

Lisa Schneider, Susan Homey, Pam Lawrence, Masumi Elrod, and Alanna Wilcox, our participant coordinators who ensured every last square was accounted for, and many of whom went above and beyond in making the final days of production and installation possible.

John Ernisse for your tireless effort and positivity throughout the installation.

First #crocheted mural from the new series!!! Thank you to the wonderful people who participated in this project.
#HarrietTubman, born into slavery in 1822 on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, possessed an uncommon courage and religious faith that allowed her to take her own freedom at the age of 27 and risk her life 13 more times to bring about 70 family members and friends North. She purchased her home in Auburn, NY from William H. Seward in 1859. Tubman worked as a nurse, cook, laundress, teacher, scout and spy during the Civil War and became the first woman in American military history to conduct an armed raid that rescued some 750 slaves from plantations along the Combahee River in the Hilton Head area of S. Carolina. Returning to Auburn she farmed and took in needy persons in addition to traveling to speak in support of Women’s Suffrage. Her life was one of caring for others culminating in the establishment of the John Brown Infirmary and her Home for the Aged. She lived in Auburn for the last 50 years of her life, longer than she lived anywhere else, making the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park preserving her residence, Home for the Aged, the Thompson Memorial AME Zion Church, which she attended, and her grave site a long overdue, but most appropriate decision.

My mission is to remind as many people as possible that we must never forget the past so that history doesn’t repeat itself. Seventy years ago, many people did not react to the tragedy of Jews during the Holocaust, and today, many do not notice the tragedy of immigrants. In recent years, I have been working with refugees on many of my projects and their stories are beyond devastating.  I seek to remind a generation that we cannot allow another massacre and all that goes with it to happen again.
