A reader who was enjoying having the city to themselves on this holiday weekend sent us this photo of the Perelman Building at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, wondering how someone was able to yarn bomb this building without any interference from the, ahem, authorities.


It was only after a little digging that we discovered that this apparent act of subversion was instead an installation in and of itself. According to a post on Architizer,  Elisabeth Agro, Curator of American Craft at the museum, asked artist Jessie Hemmons (Philadelphia’s resident yarn bomber, Ishknits) to create this piece, Craft Spoken Here, for the museum.

Certainly something cool to check out as you wring the last hours out of this long weekend.
