Yarn bombing at PHL Airport

I shouldn’t really use the words “bombing” and “airport” in a sentence, but right now there’s an installation at Philadelphia International Airport created by an artist who practices the gentle graffiti art of yarn bombing: knitting, uninvited, around trees, parking meters, public sculptures and other objects.

As part of an exhibit of her work, Jessie Hemmons, known as ishknits, was commissioned to create colorful cozies for two columns at the PHL airport.

Look for the wrapped columns – and the exhibit – in PHL Terminal F through December 2014.
