#100: The Ladies Fancywork Society
The Ladies Fancywork Society -- a somewhat anonymous collective of crafty women -- has been delighting Denver for a half-dozen years, working covertly in the dark of night to create yarnbombed installations that sprout out of nowhere in the strangest of places. They've made us laugh and look in wonder as trees grow sweaters and flowers bloom on chain-link fences. As they say in their statement, "They believe in taking ownership of our surroundings, and putting skirts on the world is their way of doing it." It's a whimsical message that anyone can make art, underlined by the feminine...and maybe a little of the feminist.
