Photo Gallery: A Yarn Bomb Went Off in Brookland

[All photos by the author]

Anyone that's stopped by Brookland in the past week may notice that the Monroe Street Bridge has gotten significantly more colorful. Yes, there's already a mural adorning both sides of the bridge and on weekends the neighboring Monroe Street Market art walk is full of artistry. However, now the bridge has a veritable mural of yarn that's even visible from the Brookland Metro platform. The Brookland Bombshells, the knitting group responsible for the guerrilla artwork, announced the project back in November. In the past, the Albert Einstein Memorial has been been the site of a yarn bomb and trees in Rosslyn have also been adorned with scarf-like artwork. Take a look at the photos of the Monroe Street Bridge after the jump.
