Starting with some “IN OTHER NEWS” this week because it’s a little time sensitive:
Remember how a crazy woman destroyed the Heights yarn bomb last week? Well looks like it will will rise again!
- Something is afoot regarding the Yarn Bomb that was installed on Heights Blvd in honor of International Yarn Bomb day. I’m not exactly sure what it is but I know it will have yarn and pictures and your help is needed to pull it off! Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the project, the knitters just can't let it end on a gloomy note because of one crazy person. Help them resurrect the Yarnbomb on the Boulevard in a “new format.”
- “Did you see the Yarnbomb before it was vandalized? Did you take a picture?? Please email your photos, ESPECIALLY if they include people, pets, or anything in front of the yarnbomb. Quirky and fun is dandy. With everyone's help, we'll be creating a new project at the site that will bring smiles back, instead of scowls and head shaking.”
- Email your photos to: email@example.com by Sunday, June 23, 4 p.m.
- There is still a reward for finding out who went so nuts they had to rip this art apart!
Thursday, June 20, 6 pm: Third Thursday with Heights Urbanites

Thursday, June 20, 6 pm- 9 pm: Help mary Anne Kick Cancer at Avis Frank Gallery
- Thursday evening Avis Frank Gallery is having a fundraiser for local design instructor Mary Anne Pennington. Mary Anne is 39 and is the caretaker/provider for her elderly mother. She has been diagnosed with two forms of cancer. Her treatment is expensive. During her recovery she is unable to earn the money she needs to provide for her mother and herself, so friends and artists have been working very hard to try and make a difference.
- If you don’t know Mary Anne and wonder why you might want to attend- Avis Frank will have fantastic paintings, prints, sculpture, jewelry and clothing donated for an amazing silent auction. The gallery says it “is truly some terrific art and more coming in daily.”
