Olek, a New York based artist, crocheted a sweater on Christmas Eve for Arturo Di Modica’s charging bull sculpture located in Bowling Green park in Lower Manhattan. Read more about it here.

It looks very cool but I’m going to be a curmudgeon. How much more of a gift would it have been if she’d made warm things for the homeless of the city instead of something that was torn up the next day?

I’m confused. One person crocheted this whole thing ON Christmas Eve?
Also, I agree with Debby.

You might as well say that all art is useless and to no point. Artists of all kinds donate much/many useful stuff/things to our communities besides making wonderful things to entertain our eyes and brains.
So….everyone say what THEY contributed to their community this holiday season!
I really think most people think of others less fortunate than themselves.
IMHOO

I thought the parking meter cozies in my neighborhood were pretty great, but this takes awesomely bizarre to a whole new level. Sadly, I was out of town.
