Locals yarnbomb the Dayton Art Institute!

Calling all yarnbombers. The Dayton Art Institute wants yarnbombers to decorate their outdoor area in honor of their Superhero Summer. Yellow Springers and Jafagirls Nancy Mellon and Corrine Bayraktaroglu have gotten the yarnball rolling by contributing work of their own. Read about it here.

Choose a spot on the DAI grounds to beautify through yarn bombing – just grab a set of guidelines, sign the release form and knit or crochet or felt away! Contact Mary Beth Whitley at 937-223-5277 ext. 335 or for yarn bombing release forms, which must be on file to participate.
