The statues at Wichita State University have been covered in graffiti. But it's the kind of graffiti the school welcomes because it's easy to cleanup.
The campus has been yarn bombed. Dozens of area knitters and crocheters have worked for months to design yarn pieces for all of the artwork owned by the Ulrich Museum. They're using 24,856 yards of yarn, 184 kitting needles and 46 crocheting hooks to get the job done.
Friday a group of women covered the millipede statute outside the museum. They spent months knitting pieces to cover each section of the 25 foot statue. They also made leg warmers for each of its legs.
All of the work should be done by Saturday September 15th, in time for the reopening of the Ulrich Museum. The yarn bombings will stay up for a week or two, depending on the weather. So if you want to see it in person, head over to Wichita State.
