More West Side Art


Here a few more of the art pieces I found along Grand Avenue last weekend.  I especially liked this shade cover with the flowers and grapes hanging from it.

There were trees covered in knitted blankets or robes and other knitted creatures hanging from the wires above the sidewalk.































Here's another covered tree.  This one is covered with pom-pom like groups of yarn.


































And one of the trees had these lovely flower balls hanging from it like Christmas ornaments.  

There was a lot to see on this one little stretch of street.

Wow, that is quite the installation! I love the knitted tree covers. I've found similar ones in Iceland and New York City. There's one particular street artist -- can't remember the name -- who specializes in covering all sorts of objects, from street signs to bicycles to cars, in knitted coverings.

Your Phoenix looks bright and cheery and lovely to look at on a dull Coventry day.

Are the grapes real, think I'd be picking them if they were. Cheers the sidewalk up no end

I took the grapes for real ones...

I'd wondered about the grapes too. Very colourful installations!

its a riot of color everywhere you look and brightens up the street for sure! I love the crocheted square blankets wrapped around the trees! Very fun vibe there!
Thanks too for stopping by and commenting on my blog

These are all quite fantastic! I love the first shot and think that would be a worthwhile idea to incorporate in an outdoor patio. I also really like the yarn pom-poms!

Brilliant! So cheerful (though the first one reminds me of Italian trattorias here... :-))

What a cool funky area, Sharon! Great fun!

How unique! I love all the colors.

Real grapes? Lovely setting but never heard of Arizona wine.

Yarn bombing! I especially like that "flower ball" a really neat idea.

My goodness, has Grand Avenue undergone a revitalization? It was always such a dreary stretch. These are all so pretty and colorful.

My oh my. Lots of decor along that street, none of it to my particular taste, but they didn't ask me . . .
