Ishknits Yarnbombs Rocky into a Tourist; Tourists Not Pleased
After yarnbombing a bra and panties on the Frank Rizzo statue at 15th and JFK on Tuesday, Ishknits headed over to the Art Museum to bomb Rocky, giving the iconic statue a camera and fanny pack to help him better fit in with the crowds of tourists who line up daily to snap a shot with him… BRILLIANT!!
But just like the Rizzo piece, this didn’t last long either. In this case, it was due to some annoying folks who wanted Jessie to take down her installation so that they could take a photo with Rocky sans her mocking knit bomb. And after arguing with her for a few minutes, the woman called the police, who arrived quickly and torn it down… Lame tourists.
