K2TOG Knit 2 Together Art Project Complete!!

Birmingham based knitting graffiti artist group “Stitches and Hos”:http://stitchesandhos.wordpress.com/ has finished the Olympic themed project on the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery entrance portico.

Around 890 balls of wool have been used by approximately 1000 knitters to create the sleeves for the columns. The colours chosen are those of the Olympic rings and are also the colours of the US and Jamaican flags whose Olympic teams are staying in Birmingham for the duration of the Olympics.

Associated Architects assisted the artists in gaining planning permission for the installation which is featured on the “BBC”:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-19007088 website and “Creative Boom.”:http://thecreativeboom.com/news/birmingham-museum–art-gallery-adorned-in-graffiti-knitting-for-olympics-community-project/

Well done to all involved!!
