Mill Valley Village is a place to belong, to connect with old and new friends. Our more than 100 local volunteers, your neighbors, couple old-fashioned neighborliness with modern know-how to provide a wide range of programs and valuable benefits to fellow villagers as well as the broader Mill Valley community.
Knitting Us Together
A Mill Valley Community Project
This is such a great project! The Mill Valley Arts Council and Kiddo! are launching a public art project on the Mill Valley Downtown Plaza. The idea is to create public art in a way that brings the entire community together. Each of us can participate, whatever our age, whatever our skill set. We can can make a piece, help collect them from others, we can put the dates on our calendar to go be admirers of the final result, even photograph the project to share with other villagers, friends and neighbors. Lots of options. Below are the details.
This will be a temporary installation and is commonly called "Urban Knitting". It will involve temporarily and safely covering some of trees in the plaza with knit or crocheted patches of yarn and flowers.
The plan is to launch the Art Installation in early October and for it to remain up for 7 - 10 days. If you would like to be a "maker" they ask you to knit or crochet a 12" square or rectangle (not to exceed 12 inches in height). The color theme is to be reds, yellows and greens. However if you don't have these colors they encourage you to make something anyhow. Nothing will be turned away. Completed pieces may be dropped off at the Mill Valley Community Center in the basket outside the front door between 10 and 2 Monday through Friday. The goal is to have the pieces there before September 15th. Mill Valley Village members who cannot drop off their pieces themselves are welcome to call the office (415-457-4633) and a volunteer will happily arrange to pick up and deliver your work. Please refer to our August newsletter (under the Newsletter tab further up this page) for more details.
Hope you all have some fun with this project and we will keep you posted with any updates.
