Had a funny moment last week I thought you might enjoy:
I noticed this message pop up on Twitter from Ari Shapiro, who covers the White House for NPR:
Spotted this outside the Renwick Gallery across from the White House. LOVE.
He linked to this photo of a bicycle that had been covered in bright-colored crocheting, down to the training wheels.
I recognized the idea of crochet-covered bicycles from this Creators Project video I came across a few months ago:
This weekend, she replied to both of us, confirming the bike Shapiro had seen was hers:
Yes! Put there in anticipation of my upcoming show at the @Smithsonian Renwick Gallery opening June 2012.
Have you seen any colorful street features or creatures you’ve wondered about? I can’t promise I can repeat this fluke of knowing who made them, but we can try putting it out to more heads than one. Leave a comment below or on our Facebook.
As Shapiro commented when he reposted my hypothesis, “Twitter’s amazing.”
