More than 100 local sewing enthusiasts collaborated on a Queen City "yarn bomb," a playful form of street art in which knitted or crocheted pieces are attached to outside objects in an unexpectedly colorful display. The playful explosion of yarn will be featured during Currier Museum of Art's second annual Art Fest, set to run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 11, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 12. Artisans from across the region will show and sell everything from glassworks and jewelry to bread, jams and gourmet mustards. Artist demonstrations and activities for all ages also are planned. The Art Fest theme, "Crafting Community," was developed in conjunction with the exhibition "Abigail Anne Newbold: Crafting Settlements," which is on display through July 14, at the Ash Street museum. On Saturday from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m., Newbold will be sewing in the Putnam Gallery and available to answer questions about her work. For more information, visit currier.org or call 669-6144.
