YARN n YOGA brings crowd, creativity to Euclid Beach

What could be better than a sunny summer evening on Lake Erie?

The sun warmed the sand while a gentle breeze carried Sounds of the Soul’s lyrics to yogis reaching for the sky in tree pose. All evening the lake shimmered as community members and artists stood side by side wrapping, weaving, and knitting on to the historic Pier.

YARN n YOGA, a grass-roots, volunteer-led arts and recreation project supported by Cleveland Metroparks, Waterloo Arts, Northeast Shores, and Praxis Fiber Workshop drew families from Westlake, artists from Akron, donations from Boston, and press as far reaching as California. It quickly became Cleveland’s first large-scale yarn bomb and a bright, beautiful, temporary public arts project that EVERYONE and anyone could participate in at no cost thanks to monetary and material donations. The event was funded through a crowd-sourced Kickstarter campaign, a grant from The Cleveland Lakefront Parks Conservancy and would not have been possible without the talent of more than a dozen artists whose inspired pre-made panels catalyzed the public’s excitement and involvement.

Mike Zellers - who fondly remembers the Park as an amusement park - took home the “Best in Show” arts prize (sponsored by The Artful Yarn –Chagrin Falls) for his panel “Mermaid”. Runners up included Linda Zolten Wood’s “Accidental Neon” which incorporated plarn (plastic grocery bags turned yarn) and Leslie Edwards Humez’s “Flotsam”.
