CINCINNATI - Downtown Cincinnati will have a little more color Thursday thanks to a group of local artists.
The Bombshell’s Yarn dropped their “yarn bomb” on Cincinnati Wednesday. No, this type of bomb didn’t cause any damage to the city, but it did add some pizazz around the community.
Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth rather than paint or chalk.
The Bombshells’ work is displayed on trees, planters and curbs along Central Parkway. These wig-clad weavers even decorated a city bus in yarn.
Yarn was donated to help the group with their project. The Bombshells says they aim to add a little bit of love and warmth to the city.
In the past, the Bombshells have yarn-bombed the statues of Cincinnatus, Romulus and Remus and the façade of the Contemporary Arts Center.
