Sorry that some of your readers don’t like the yarn bombing on Victoria Street (The Daily News, Aug. 27).
I think it’s wonderful. Each tree is a comment, or a joke, a landscape, a mystery, or an over the top party! This is folk art, dreamed up by our art gallery. It showcases the wide-ranging crafty, possibilities of ordinary Kamloops people.
It marks a special occasion with colour and makes us smile.
For those groups and singles that knitted and sewed, it was all fun, their chance to make a unique gift to the downtown landscape.
It was their chance to lace it on the tree, photograph it and walk away, hopeful that somebody will come along and smile, or wonder. Their chance to participate in the welcoming of seniors from across B.C.
Lighten up, all you art critics.
