Birmingham In Stitches Event Overview
The Birmingham Public Arts Board's Birmingham In Stitches event
 is a community-based public art installation event that promotes existing public art programs, such as the Art in Public Spaces program, and engages the broader community in public art.  This project is based around the concept of “yarn bombing”, which involves placing knitted or crocheted objects onto trees, parking meter posts, light posts, bicycle racks, and benches. During previous events, the yarn installations have been in the following locations: Shain Park, the plaza at Townsend and Pierce, Merrill Street between Old Woodward and Pierce, the Birmingham Historical Museum and St. James Church. Three events have occurred (September 2012, September 2015 and Winter Markt 2015).
